Poached Haddock (U.K.)

How To Make Traditional British Poached Haddock

Pour a little milk in a shallow pasta bowl and place the fish in it. Add the rest of the milk over the fish with the butter on top and cover with pierced cling - film. Microwave on full for 3 minutes and let stand for 1 min and then microwave further for 1 min. Take off the film being careful of the steam and add the pepper and parsley. That's it!

Serving Suggestion: Serve with 1 or 2 poached eggs on top and have bread on the side for dipping into the "liquor" and egg yolk. Now, you're eating well!

Tip: Ask your local fishmonger for the best cuts of haddock.

Traditional British breakfast dish that's best served on cold, rainy, winter mornings while drinking a good cup of Rosie Lee tea.
