  1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan. Tip in the bacon, then cook until starting to brown. Add the onion, cook until soft, then pour over the milk and stir through the potatoes. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 mins.

  2. Add the haddock, then leave to gently cook for another 10 mins. By now the fish should have defrosted so you can break it into large chunks. Stir through the sweetcorn, then cook for another few mins until the fish is cooked through and the sweetcorn has defrosted. Scatter over parsley, if using. Serve with plenty of crusty bread.

I found it a bit bland, so I added some vegetable stock. This improved the taste no end. Very hearty meal. Will make again

Not sure why this is classed as 'moderately easy' but maybe that's because I made this in the slow cooker. I sautéed the potatoes, onion, and replaced bacon for prosciutto ham, then put the mix into the slow cooker and followed as per recipe guide. Easy, simple cosy food.

Great dish! Easily made enough for three and very filling! I added some flour to thicken as advised by others and plenty of seasoning. Delicious! Great autumn dish, will definitely make again.

Really simple, fast and tasty! I used fresh haddock and fish stock (out of veg), but will have frozen smoked haddock in the freezer in the future so I can make this. Makes me wish I was eating it for lunch by the Cornish coast.

i found it a bit bland and the soup too thin so it definately needs flour to thicken it up a bit and give it some depth.

I added some cornflour (corn starch), but other than that, this recipe was perfect. Filling, tasty and enough for three or four.

sounds very nice, as i don't eat fish or vegetables so would cook for other half and he would love it with some chunky bread from the bakers

Tasty and very easy. A very filling meal by itself and perfect for a cold night. I got three healthy portions out of it too.
