Smoked Haddock and Celtic Promise Chowder

Smoked Haddock and Celtic Promise Chowder


The gorgeous taste combination of smoked haddock and the creamy and strong Celtic Promise makes this more comforting than a lie in.

1. Poach the haddock in the milk and cream for 5 - 6 minutes, and then flake and leave in cooking liquor. Put to one side and allow to cool.
2. Melt the butter and oil and gently fry the onion, celery, leek and garlic until translucent (about 5 mins).
3. Add the wine and reduce by half.
4. Add potatoes and stock, season, and cook for 20 mins until potatoes start to break up.
5. Remove from heat and add the flaked haddock and the milk mixture.
6. Add half of the grated Celtic Promise and taste for seasoning.
7. Divide between six soup bowls and garnish with the remaining cheese, chopped parsley and a little extra virgin olive oil.
