Ingredients

  • 4 pieces of undyed smoked haddock, about 150 to 170g each
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Onion
  • 4 black peppercorns
  • 350g fresh spinach leaves
  • freshly grated nutmeg
  • For the hollandaise sauce
  • A squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar mixed with 4 tbsp water
  • 4 lightly crushed white peppercorns
  • 1 small bay leaf
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 125g melted butter

Method

  • Get a saucepan, large enough to hold the 4 smoked haddock fillets in one layer, and add some water, the bay leaf, a whole peeled onion and a few peppercorns. Bring to the boil.

  • Place the fillets in the pan. As the water comes back to the boil, turn the fillets over to poach them on both sides. This should take a few minutes. When both sides are white and opaque, remove the fish from the pan.

  • Add the spinach to the boiling water and blanch for a minute or 2.

  • Crush a clove of garlic and add a couple of grinds of nutmeg, some fresh Italian parsley and plenty of salt and pepper, plus, a bit of the peppercorn mixture from the pan. Mix this with the spinach. Set aside.

  • For the hollandaise sauce, put the egg yolks and vinegar mixture in the small cup of a food mixer. Add the lemon juice and crushed peppercorns and bay leaf, and salt and pepper.

  • Whisk at high speed until it thickens and becomes pale yellow and fluffy. Turn down the speed and add the melted butter, sluicing it in a little at a time. Leave in the food mixer in a warm place to rest.

  • Lay out a slice of butter toast on each plate. Add the spinach mixture, then, put the haddock fillets on top.

  • Using the back of a spoon, spread the hollandaise sauce over the haddock.

  • Serving Suggestions: Serve with poached eggs, and sprinkled with a little paprika.
