Soft Boiled Bantam Egg with Creamed Leeks and Arbroath Smokies
|Arbroath smokie/Smoked skinned haddock fillet||2 Medium, skinned, boned (about 300-350 grams)|
|Milk||1 Cup (16 tbs) (for poaching, if using haddock) (Optional)|
|Leek||1 Large, washed, finely shredded|
|Double cream||250 Milliliter|
|Bantam eggs||4 Large|
|Parsley||1 Tablespoon, chopped finely|
|Salt||1 Teaspoon (or to taste)|
|Cracked black pepper||1 Teaspoon (or to taste)|
1. Check the fish carefully for any pin-bones, removing any you find with tweezers.
2. If using smoked haddock, poach it in gently simmering milk or water to cover for 3-4 minutes, then drain and break up the flesh into fairly large pieces.
3. Heat the butter in a pan and gently cook the leek for 3-4 minutes until soft, then add the cream and fish.
4. Season lightly and simmer until the cream has reduced down a little and is just coating the fish. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
5. Meanwhile, soft-boil the bantam eggs by carefully lowering them into a pan of simmering water and cooking gently for 3 1/2 - 4 minutes.
6. Briefly refresh in cold water until the eggs are cool enough to handle, then remove and carefully peel.
7. Divide the creamed fish and leek among warmed-up plates and sprinkle with the chopped parsley and place the egg on top.
8. Grind over a little pepper and serve at once.
