By Kayeled



  • 1 onion

  • 1 pint chicken stock

  • 1/2 large sweet potato

  • 3 medium potatoes

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 3 smoked haddock fillets

  • 1 splash milk or cream

  • 1 pinch parsley or cayenne pepper


  1. In a large pan, fry chopped onion in butter until it starts to soften.
  2. Chop potato and sweet potato into fairly small chunks.
  3. Add to pan and pour stock over.
  4. Simmer gently (with lid on) for at least 30 mins, until the potato is soft and starts to break down.
  5. Cut the haddock into chunks and add to pan.
  6. Simmer for about 4-5 mins.
  7. The mix should now be fairly soft and lumpy. You can either blitz with a hand whisk or leave lumps in.
  8. Add milk or cream to get the consistency you want.
  9. Add fresh parsley or a sprinkle of cayenne, depending on preferred tastes, and serve with fresh bread.

Handy Hint

Frozen smoked haddock is just as good and is much cheaper.
