Smoked haddock with flageolet beans and mustard



serves 2

flageolet beans - 2 x 400g cans

smoked haddock - 400g

butter

milk - 250ml, plus a little more for later

bay leaves

parsley leaves - a good fistful

double cream - 300ml

grain mustard - 1 heaped tbs

spinach to serve

Remove the skin from the smoked haddock and place the fish in a lightly buttered baking dish. Pour over the milk then add enough water to almost cover the fish. Tuck in a couple of bay leaves and grind over some black pepper. Bake at 200°C/gas 6 for about 15-20 minutes or until you can pull one of the large, fat flakes of fish out with ease. Drain and discard the milk.

Rinse and re-butter the baking dish - you don't want any bits of skin from the milk left behind. Rinse the beans in a sieve under running water then empty them into a mixing bowl. Pour in the cream, a couple of tablespoons of milk, then chop the parsley and add it together with the mustard and a grinding of black pepper and a little salt. Go easy on the salt - smoked fish is saltier than fresh. Spoon the beans into the dish and lay the fish on top, spooning some of the creamy beans over the top to keep it moist. Turn the oven down to 180°C/gas 4 and bake the haddock for about 40 minutes until the cream is bubbling and the sauce has thickened around the beans. Serve with spinach.

We used to make this loads and I just remembered it again. It's an excellent quick supper dish.

lol if only, so many recipes want cream, which is something of a no no here, as it half kills Jean
