Cullen Skink

By January 24, 2017 , , ,

Cullen skink doesn't exactly sound like an appetising name for a dish. This is a traditional Scottish soup made with leeks, potatoes and smoked haddock and is very tasty indeed. It is a wonderful contrast between the sweetness of the leeks and the smokiness of the haddock. 

200g smoked haddock fillets
100g potatoes sliced thinly
1 leek thinly sliced
2 shallots thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic sliced
20g butter
300ml milk
200ml water
20ml cream
Salt and pepper to taste

Place the haddock fillets in a pan with the water and milk and bring to the boil
Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes
In a pan fry off the leeks, shallots and garlic in the butter on a low heat until they are soft and glossy
Add the potatoes,100ml of water and cook for 10 mins on a low heat
Strain the water from the cooked haddock and add to the pan
Blend the leek and potato mix until smooth and add back to the pan
Lastly add the haddock fillets and stir so that they start to break up
Season to taste and add the cream before serving
