Fish on Friday

Friday, 27 April, 2012

Here’s my mother’s recipe for smoked haddock, a dish that appears on the home table on Fridays. This serves four, by the way:

500g smoked haddock
1 onion
2 carrots
nut of butter
1/2 cup of milk
1 tablespoon of white flour
salt and pepper

Preparation: Cut the haddock into four strips and dust with salt and pepper. Slice the carrots. Place the fish and carrots in a pot, cover with water and bring to the boil before allowing to simmer for 20 minutes. Chop up the onion and add. Continue to simmer until the fish is tender. Draw off most of the water and add the butter. Mix the flour and milk to make a thin paste. Add slowly to the pot and allow the sauce to thicken. This tastes particularly well when served with new potatoes. Simple and delicious.
