Smoked haddock gougere

Doesn't half make the kitchen/house pong, but I bought some undyed smoked haddock yesterday on a whim & have decided to turn it into smoked haddock gougere since I already had some interesting swiss cheese left over from last weekend - I'm using one of Claire Macdonald's recipes which sounds lovely, & although I haven't made it before it looks simple enough.

We'll be reminded of it for several days probably! At least I have several cans of air freshener.

Must open window wider ...!

Fishy smell

I know what you mean, it really puts me off cooking smoked fish! Have you tried lighting a few candles? They don't have to be perfumed but they do help to get rid of smells quicker.

smoked fish pong

Not heard that solution before, so I'll give it a go.

The air freshener has done it's best, but it still smells like the Southampton docks in my kitchen. I think I have some perfumed candles somewhere.

The teenagers weren't impressed with the fishy smell, so I suggested that they left home ... they're still here so it can't be that bad.

fishy smell

When I am cooking fish I always use my oil burner; keep it alight until the tealight burns out ; does the trick for me.

Having kedgeree tomorrow night, got to be tomorrow night as we have visitors in a fortnight! Hoping the smell will be gone by then!

Smoked haddock

I boil a small pan of water then sit a bowl of distilled vinegar with lemon juice in it - heat off.
Always works I find.

Boil some cabbage - LOL at that!

I could go all out & get the blue cheese from the fridge to add to the general aroma ...

Or sprouts ...

"The teenagers weren't impressed with the fishy smell, so I suggested that they left home."

Ha ha - that's a bit radical isn't it? Couldn't you just make them stand in the garden or something?

Anyway, how did it come out - was it worth it?

Fishy smells

Cut an onion in half and leave out for a few hours and it will absorb all the fishy whiffs. I cook kippers regularly for Steve and do the onion trick and it works a treat.

It's roasted goat cheese that makes me leave home - do you have a neutralizer for that?

'Anyway, how did it come out - was it worth it?'

So so. Nice enough, but it was a bit like a fish toad in the hole becaue you make the choux with the added cheese & pile that up around the dish, then put the fish in sauce in the middle & bake it all together.

If I made it again I'd cook the gougere on it's own so it was drier & crispy all over instead of just on the top & serve with the fish sauce & veg separately I think.
