Potted Haddie with Capers

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


This recipe is adapted from Delia's Complete Cookery Course


Place the haddock fillets in a large frying pan with 275ml boiling water, cover and poach them for about 5 minutes, then remove from the pan and drain thoroughly.

Now skin the fish and flake the flesh into a food processor, discarding any stray bones.  Add the melted butter and blend until smooth.

Then empty the mixture into a bowl and season - but be sparing with the salt.  Stir in the curry powder and lemon juice to taste and fill eight individual dishes with the mixture.

Cover with foil or clingfilm and put the dishes in the refrigerator so that the fish mixture become firm before serving.

Spoon the capers on top and serve with lemon quarters and sprigs of parsley or watercress.
