Somewhere between hash and kedgeree, this easy dish with sweetcorn and eggs makes a perfect brunch or light supper

Nutrition: per serving


  • 2 large red potatoes (about 450/1lb), cut into bite-sized chunks (we used Desirée)
  • 300g piece undyed smoked haddock , skin on
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion , chopped
  • 1 or 2 sweetcorn cobs
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • zest 1 lemon , then cut into wedges
  • 25g pack flat-leaf parsley (or coriander), roughly chopped
  • 2 very fresh eggs
  • splash of white wine vinegar
  • mango chutney , to serve (optional)


  • STEP 1

    Put the potatoes in a large pan of salted cold water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 mins until just tender. When ready, lift the potatoes out, then add the fish, skin-side down. Cover the pan and poach the fish gently for 5 mins until just flaking in the middle of the fillet. Drain and set aside. (You’ll use the pan again for the eggs, so don’t wash it yet).

  • STEP 2

    Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the onion for 5 mins. Shave the kernels from the corn cobs using a sharp knife, then add to the onion and cook for 2 mins.

  • STEP 3

    Add the potatoes to the pan, turn up the heat and cook for 5 mins until turning golden here and there. Scrape the bottom of the pan if the potatoes start to stick – any crispy bits are lovely. Add the mustard, cumin and lemon zest, stir for about 1 min more, then season and add lemon juice from half the wedges. Flake in the fish, fold in the parsley, then cover and keep warm.

  • STEP 4

    Poach the eggs in water boiled with the splash of vinegar and a pinch of salt. When just cooked with a runny yolk, serve on top of the hash, in bowls, with the rest of the lemon wedges to squeeze over and the chutney on the side.
