Ingredients
  • 2 large potatoes, cut into even-sized chunks
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 15g butter
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 350g smoked haddock fillets (undyed if possible)
  • 800ml whole milk
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
Method
  • Boil the potatoes until tender. Drain, reserving 200ml cooking water, and mash.

  • In another large saucepan, cook the onion in the butter and oil over a medium heat until soft. Lay the fish on top and add the reserved water. Cover the pan and simmer very gently for 5 minutes.

  • Lift out the fish, discard the skin, then flake the fish.

  • Add the milk and potato to the pan and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring. Stir in the fish and heat through.

  • Serve sprinkled with parsley and seasoned with pepper.
