Time 00:15


  • 4
    potatoes, peeled, boiled and mashed
  • 30
  • 200
    fresh cream
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4
    smoked haddock fillets
  • 200
  • 2
    large eggs
  • handful fresh chives, snipped



To make the mash, put the hot mashed potatoes into a mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir to mix well and keep warm until ready to serve.
Lay the haddock fillets in a shallow microwaveable dish and pour the milk over to half cover. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on High until the haddock flesh flakes easily, for about 4 – 5 minutes.  Meanwhile, get a pan of water to a simmer for the eggs.
Crack the eggs into the simmering water and poach until the whites are set, but the yolks are still soft, for about 1 – 2 minutes.
Serve the fish topped with the mash; poached egg and chives while still warm.
