As a Fish Fanatic, I am always on the look out for new fish recipes to create that fits in with my busy lifestyle, and this recipe is an absolute winner……..beautiful undyed smoked haddock is cooked au gratin with spinach, cheese,crèmefraîcheand tomatoes for a quick and easy meal for two. This recipe was on the table in just over half an hour, and the onlyaccompanimentneeded was a fresh side salad.

No need for any white sauce, just a dollop ofcrème fraîche with grated cheese is all that is needed for this gratin dish. The recipe would also make a great appetiser – share the ingredients between 4 ramekin dishes and serve as a comforting starter, with a side salad and a wedge of lemon. If your children appreciate the finer things in life, double the recipe for a fabulous family supper, or substitute the smoked haddock with coley, hake, cod ofhaddockfor them and keep the best stuff for yourselves! This dish certainly hit the spot today, and we both wolfed it down…..strangely enough with a cup of tea.

I am always banging on about fish I know, but it is a constant source of surprise to me that fish isnot cooked in the family home more often, as it is the original fast food;a nice filleted,skinnedand boned piece of fish can be on the table with seasonalvegetablesin abouthalf an hour. Fish is packed full ofOmega-3 oils (Found in various concentrations in many different kinds of seafood, marine Omega-3 fatty acid comes from the family of ‘good’ fats that are not only beneficial for health, but are an essential dietary requirement.)and it’s quick to cook, plus, easy to digest for all ages, but especially children. The haddock I used, was caught on the North Sea off Scotland, andNorth Sea haddock stocks are accredited by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) so you don’t need to worry about sustainability either. We all know about Five-a-Day for fruit andvegetables butdidyou know thatthereis a Two-a-Weeksuggestionfor fish? We eat it at least twice a week, and sometimes three times a week.
