Serves 2

Ingredients:Cheesy smoked haddock recipe

  • 2 smoked haddock fillets
  • 200 ml creme fraiche
  • 50 g parmesan or cheddar or mixed
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tsp roasted garlic paste
  • 150 g kale
  • 150 g spinach
  • 2 eggs

Melt the butter in a wide-based saucepan. Add the double cream, cheese and mustard and season with salt and pepper. Put a kettle on to boil for the poached eggs.

Add the smoked haddock fillets into the creamy cheese sauce and gently poach until the edges of the fish begin to flake. Then turn the heat off and cover the pan.

Meanwhile, saute your mixed greens and roasted garlic in a wok and put your eggs onto poach, cracking them first into a cup and then pouring them into your gently boiling water for a couple of minutes.

Serve the fish on top of a large bed of garlicky greens, with the cheese sauce and poached egg on top. Finish with a garnish of roasted almonds and cracked black pepper.
