Smoked Haddock Bake
Seafood Scotland’s Young Chef of the Year, Adam Newth, has created a couple of fish dishes for Scotland.org, the Gateway to Scotland. I made the Smoked Haddock Bake after a long day preparing for a pre-Christmas family feast.
It was so quick easy to make and pop into the oven, everything is in one dish, we really enjoyed it. There are lovely contrasting textures of salty, smoky fish, creamy but sharp creme fraiche, tender pieces of potato and the crispy breadcrumb and parmesan mix on top. The dish also contains broad beans and peas making it a great one-pot meal.
Check out the rest of the St Andrew’s Day menu and maybe you could have a St Andrews Night In this Saturday?
