English Smoked Haddock Soup Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4


  • 1 pound smoked haddock or "finny"
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 2 cups single cream
  • 3 ounces butter
  • 2 ounces flour
  • A screw of black pepper
  • Chopped chives (parsley or basil), to garnish
How to cook English Smoked Haddock Soup:
  • Slice the onion and crush the garlic. Melt one-third of the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan. Add the sliced onion and soften it without coloring.
  • Cut the haddock into pieces and add to the pan. Cover with the water. Simmer for half an hour.
  • Melt the remaining butter and mix with the flour. Strain the stock into this second pan. Bring the soup to the boil and check the seasoning: it will probably be salty enough.
  • Remove the fish from the bones and put on one side for fish cakes another day.
  • Add the cream, re-heat and serve with plenty of freshly chopped chives, parsley or basil, or all three.
