    Smoked haddock with spinach & lemon butter sauce


    Total time               Ready in 15 mins

    Serves: 2


    300g undyed smoked haddock fillet, skinned and cut into two
    15g chilled essential Waitrose Unsalted Dairy Butter, diced, plus a little extra, melted, for brushing
    100g pack baby spinach
    Large pinch grated nutmeg
    1 eschallion shallot, finely chopped
    2 tbsp white wine
    Juice and grated zest of ½ lemon
    2 tbsp single creamMashed potatoes, to serve


    1. Preheat the grill. Brush the smoked haddock with a little melted butter and grill for 3–4 minutes each side until the flesh is opaque and cooked through. Keep warm. Rinse the spinach in cold water then place in a saucepan, cover and cook for a couple of minutes until wilted. Drain well and season with grated nutmeg.

    2.While the fish is cooking, place the shallot in a small pan with the wine, lemon juice and 4 tbsp cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half. Add the cream and simmer for a minute, then gradually whisk in the diced butter, a piece at a time, to give a thick sauce. Add the lemon zest and season to taste.

    3.Arrange the spinach on 2 warm serving plates and top with the grilled fish. Spoon over the sauce and serve with creamy mashed potato.
