Fish Soup Recipe
Cullen Skink

This is a lovely fish soup recipe - traditionally from the North of England. It's a smoked haddock soup thickened with mashed potato.

This is a delicious thick and creamy fish soup and makes a substantial lunch. 

Absolutely delicious...


Cullen Skink
12 oz (350g) smoked haddock
1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 1/2 pints (900ml) water
1 1/4 lbs (500g) peeled potatoes
1 pint (600ml) milk
2 oz (50g) butter
fresh ground black pepper
chopped parsley to serve

Put the haddock, onion and water into a pan. Bring to the boil and simmer covered for about 10 minutes. Scum will rise to the surface, so check occasionally and skim.


You do this by taking a slotted spoon and removing the frothy bits that rise to the top of the simmering liquid - just put it in your kitchen sink and run the hot tap over it - a bit of bleach will take the smell away.

Remove the haddock from the pan, then bone, skin and flake it and put it to one side.

Return the bone and skin to the stock, simmer for about 30 minutes then strain the liquid.

Do this through a very fine sieve or a muslin cloth to make sure you get rid of all the bones - you don't want any in the finished soup.

Add the quartered potatoes and boil for about 25 minutes until they're soft enough to mash.

Remove the potatoes and mash them smoothly with the butter.

Add the milk to the pan and bring to the boil - then whisk in the potatoes until the soup is thick and creamy.

Return the pan to the heat, stir in the flaked fish and when it's piping hot, serve with crusty bread.

You could garnish it with a little chopped fresh parsley if you like.
