Cullen skink is a soup from Cullen in Morayshire using smoked haddock for a rich flavour.
- Cover the haddock with water in a shallow pan with skin side down.
- Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes, turning once.
- Take the fish from the pan and remove the skin and bones.
- Flake the fish and return to the stock.
- Add chopped onion, bay leaf, salt and pepper.
- Simmer for a further 10 minutes.
- Strain the stock and keep it ready. Discard the bay leaf and keep the fish warm.
- Add the milk to the fish stock and bring to the boil.
- Add mashed potato to make a rich and thick soup.
- Add the fish and check the seasoning—add more if needed.
- When serving, add the butter in small pieces so it runs through the soup.
- Serve with chopped parsley on top, and toast by the side.
Notes, tips, and variationsEdit
- If smoked haddock is unavailable, smoked kippers have been known to serve in its place.
