  • 1 medium baking potato
  • 1 small piece haddock fillet (or cod or pollack), about 150g
  • 1/2 small cauliflower , cut into florets
  • a splash of milk or knob of butter


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/ fan 180C/ gas 6. Wrap the potato in foil, place on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 1 hour 15 mins. Wrap the fish in a piece of foil, put on the same tray and continue cooking for another 10 mins or until opaque and cooked through.

    Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil, place a steamer on top and steam the cauliflower for around 8 mins or until tender.

    Once cooked, halve the potato and scoop out the filling. Flake the fish, removing any bones and discarding the skin.

  • STEP 4

    Blitz the cauliflower, potato and haddock, adding a splash of milk or knob of butter if you like, to loosen the purée.
