GETTING READY
1. Boil and mash seasonal potatoes.
2. Add chopped spring onions to the mashed potatoes and keep aside.

MAKING
3. Grease a large oven-proof dish with oil, place the smoked haddock half full of the dish.
4. Pour in enough milk to cover the fish, brush some melted butter over the fish, and sprinkle little black pepper powder.
5. Bake the smoked haddock in a medium oven at 170C/325F/Gas Mark 4 for about 12-15 minutes, until the
fish breaks when touched.
6. While the fish is cooking prepare the sauce.
7. In a medium saucepan, melt butter, stir in the flour, salt, seasoning and let it cook on a low flame for 3 minutes, stirring until it becomes a “roux”, the base of your sauce.
8. Once the fish is baked, pour the cooked milk from the oven dish into the roux, stirring at the same time.
9. Cook the above mixture for about 5 minutes until the roux becomes a thick sauce.
10. Meanwhile, peel off the skin of the haddock, shred it into small pieces and scatter it around the oven dish.
11. Before pouring the sauce on the haddock pieces, add yeats creamed cheese to the sauce and mix well for a smooth and velvety flavour.
12. Now pour a layer of the sauce over the fish pieces, just enough to cover it.

FINALIZING
13. Add a generous layer of chopped spring onions and mashed potato mixture onto the fish pieces.
14. Place it back in the oven and bake it for about 15 minutes approximately or until top is lightly golden and sauce is hot and bubbly.

SERVING
15. Serve the baked smoked haddock on a serving plate, garnished with extra cheese sauce and a few sprigs of chopped parsley.

TIPS
Baked smoked haddock can also be prepared in advance and kept in the fridge until required. For this, you will need to bake the dish for approximately 30minutes in the oven.
No need to use any lemon juice before baking as the smoked haddock already has its flavours.
