Smoked Haddock/Coley with a Mustard and Onion Cream
Smoked haddock brings back many happy childhood memories. I remember mum cooking it for us when I was a kid, she poached it in milk laced with sliced onions and chopped parsley both fresh from the garden. She would make a sauce from the milk when the fish was cooked then serve these with a dollop of creamy mash or new boiled potatoes in their skin nearly always from the garden too.
This is my take on mum’s dish, I added a few bits to give the dish more dept of flavour.
You can change the smoked haddock out for smoked coley which will be cheaper on you. I prefer naturally smoked haddock which is the one that looks pale as apposed to the bright orange one which usually contains a dye and sometimes even a smoke flavour rather than being actually smoked. Don’t get me wrong, I will choose and cook it if I am broke, I suggest you get the one you can afford as you will love the dish whichever you use.
