Smoked Haddock with Creme Fraiche, Chive and Butter Sauce
This is a great recipe, a) because it's the most wonderful combination of flavours, and b) because it takes only 12 minutes from start to finish. Serve it with spinach cooked in its own juices with a little butter, then drained well, and you'll have a sublime meal in no time at all.

This recipe is taken from How to Cook Book Two and The Delia Collection: Fish. It has also appeared in Sainsbury's Magazine (Guide to Fish Cookery).
First place the fish in the frying pan and add a little freshly milled black pepper but no salt.
Then pour in the milk (it won't cover the fish, but that doesn't matter), bring it up to simmering point and simmer gently, uncovered, for 8-12 minutes if you're using pieces of smoked haddock or cod, or 8 minutes for golden haddock cutlets.
You will be able to see quite clearly when they are cooked, as the whole thing will become pale and opaque.
Now carefully remove the fish to a plate using a fish slice, increase the heat and add the crème fraîche to the pan. Continue to simmer, uncovered, for 2-3 minutes, until the sauce reduces and thickens slightly, then whisk in the butter and return the fish to the sauce briefly.
Scatter in the chives, let it bubble for about 30 seconds and it's ready to serve.

This is an easy option when entertaining - they can be made in advance and the contrast of creamy fish and zingy, crunchy salad is superb!
This warming and nutritious soup is based on an old Scottish favourite, Cullen Skink. The addition of eggs makes it more filling and increases the protein content too.
One of Delia's favourite fish recipes, this was introduced to her by Simon Hopkinson, who cooked it for her one day at Bibendum.
Fish and spinach go remarkably well together and nowhere better than in this luscious supper dish, full of creamy cheese sauce, herbs and fish topped with Parmesan breadcrumbs.
Although it may have connotations of grand Victorian breakfasts or the Raj, kedgeree is, in fact, an easy dish for lunch or supper that is packed with good nutrition.
Made with smoked haddock this is good as a light lunch with some home-made wholemeal bread or toast, it is also a perfect starter for a Hogmanay or Burns Night supper
