– A Scottish Seafood Supper –
Scotch Rarebit with Smoked Haddock
As you may all be aware by now, I am a Fish Fanatic! In two senses – I love fish and seafood and I cook with it at least three to four times a week and, I actually am a fish fanatic on the Fish is the Dish site too………as a fish fanatic I sometimes receive selected fish to try out, and a few weeks ago I received some wonderful smoked haddock from Delish Fish in Peterhead in Scotland as part of my taster box…….fresh and beautifully packed, from shore to door, and all individually packaged in handy serving sizes. I had far too much to use at once, so I popped some of it in the freezer, and it was one of these packets that I reached for to make this new recipe of mine. I love smoked haddock and for me, it always seems like a luxury fish, something to indulge in for a special meal or occasion, but as I still have several packets in the freezer, I defrosted some for a simple supper, a lovely mid-week treat for us.
This would be the perfect recipe for a starter at a dinner party too – simply serve on small rounds of toast with salad leaves, those little slices of canapé toasts would be perfect. However, as you can see, we enjoyed this on slices of toasted wholemeal bread with a lovely side salad of mesclun leaves and fresh herbs, as well as some sliced tomatoes. This is a rich meal, so it does make an indulgent treat midweek, but, you can cut back on the quantities of the rarebit topping if you just want to eat it as a light supper-time snack. The cheese rarebit sauce can be made ahead of time and can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days, which helps out with time and prep when rustling this up!
That’s all for now, but I will be back later today with another FISHY recipe, as I have lots to share this week! I will also be back tomorrow with another sweet treat, and then look out for more pie recipes and my last violet recipe over the weekend too……oh yes, and a cake, if I have time to fit it in! See you later today when I will be cooking with Sea Bass. Karen
This is a Non-Sponsored Post: I was sent a selection of fresh fish with no request to promote them or review them on my blog or anywhere else. The published opinions above (about the smoked haddock) are my own and were not paid for in any shape or form. I have promoted the smoked haddock fillets in this post as I think that they are a quality product that I enjoyed cooking with. Thanks to Delish Fish for sending them to me to try. Karen Burns-Booth
