Cullen Skink

The name of this rich, tasty soup comes from the fishing village of Cullen, in Morayshire. "Skink" is a soup made originally from a shin of beef. But in this case, the main ingredient is smoked haddock.



Ingredients:
A large smoked haddock (weighing around 2 lb)
1 medium onion, finely chopped.
1˝ pints (900ml) milk
2 tablespoons butter
8 oz mashed potato
Salt and pepper
1 bay leaf
Chopped parsley
Water
Triangles of toast (as an accompaniment)

Method
Cover the smoked haddock with water, in a shallow pan, skin side down. Bring to the boil and simmer for 4/5 minutes, turning once. Take the haddock from the pan and remove the skin and bones. Break up the fish into flakes, return to the stock and add the chopped onion, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Simmer for another 15 minutes. Strain, remove the bay leaf but retain the stock and fish. Add the milk to the fish stock and bring back to the boil. Add enough mashed potato to create the consistency you prefer (don't be afraid to make it rich and thick!). Add the fish and reheat. Check for seasoning. Just before serving, add the butter in small pieces so that it runs through the soup.
Serve with chopped parsley on top, accompanied by triangles of toast.

I promised I would post this recipe a long time ago and am now finally getting around to it. Sorry for the long delay.

Cullen Skink

1 large smoked haddock (about 1.5-2 lb) filets
1 medium onion, finely chopped.
3 cups milk
2 T butter
1 - 1 1/2 cups mashed Yukon Gold potatoes
Salt and pepper
1 bay leaf
pinch of Old Bay seasoning
Water


In a large shallow pan, cover the fish with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes, turning once. Remove the fish and flake, set aside. Add the chopped onion, bay leaf, salt and pepper and Old Bay to the fish stock. Simmer for another 15 minutes. Strain, remove the bay leaf and save the stock. Add the milk to the fish stock and bring back to a boil. Add mashed potatoes to thicken to desired consistency. Add the fish and butter in small pieces. Serve hot with biscuits or bread.
