Cullen skink is a wonderfully flavoursome thick soup made up of potatoes, onions and smoked haddock. The traditional Cullen skink recipe originates from Scotland and is named after a coastal town in the region of Moray hence the rich, warming nature of the dish. Follow our easy method below.
Cook the smooth potatoes in a pan of lightly salted boiling water for 20 minutes or until tender, drain and set aside.
Meanwhile melt the butter in a large pan and gently fry the onion until soft.
Add the fish and the water to the pan and simmer gently for 8-10 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon remove the fish (reserving the cooking liquor), break into large chunks, discarding any bones and keep warm.
Mash the potatoes then whisk into the reserved cooking liquor and gradually add the milk.
Return to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes to heat through.
Stir in the fish and the cream, season to taste and serve immediately, garnished with chives.

“This makes a great meal for kids, the asparagus spears are fantastic finger food for them to pop their eggs with, they’ll love the potato of course and it’s a good way to introduce a different way to eat a baked potato."

Sticky salmon topped potato noodles with pak choi
Why not create healthier noodles by spiralising potatoes. Not only does it make the potato quicker to cook but also adds a fun twist to your dish. Packed full of favours, the salmon is cooked in a delightful combination of garlic and ginger before having a delicious sticky sauce drizzled all over.
"This brightly coloured and intensely flavoured recipe is speedy enough for any night of the week. The sweet and sour relish sets off the salmon beautifully and I've roasted the King Edwards in their skins to give the whole thing wholesome comfort."
