    This is a great recipe for brunch or supper. The mash is also good with grilled steak or roast beef.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 4


    1.2kg King Edward potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
    750g Waitrose Frozen Smoked Haddock Fillets, thawed, cut into 4 equal-sized pieces
    75g unsalted butter
    400ml whole milk
    1 bunch salad onions, chopped
    2 tsp wholegrain mustard
    1-2 tbsp Waitrose Creamed Horseradish
    4 medium eggs
    4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    ½ x 25g pack chives, snipped


    1. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 20-25 minutes, or until tender.
    2. Meanwhile, place the haddock in a frying pan. Add a knob of the butter, some black pepper and the milk. Bring to the boil, and simmer, covered, for 8-10 minutes, or until just cooked. Keep warm.
    3. Place the salad onions in a small pan with 6 tbsp of the cooking milk from the haddock and bring to the boil. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until softened. When the potatoes are cooked, drain and mash them with the remaining butter, the softened salad onions, 1 tsp of the mustard and horseradish to taste.
    4. Meanwhile, poach the eggs. Bring a pan of slightly salted water to the boil, stir with a spoon to create a whirlpool, then crack an egg into the centre. Simmer for 3 minutes, then remove with a slotted spoon. Set aside and repeat with the remaining eggs.
    5. Mix the remaining mustard with the olive oil and chives, then season. Place a heaped spoonful of mash onto 4 warmed plates. Top each with a piece of haddock, then a poached egg. Finally, drizzle the mustard oil over and serve immediately.

    Cook's tip

    To get ahead, poach the eggs an hour or two in advance, keep them in a bowl of iced water, then slip them back into boiling water for 1-2 minutes to reheat when ready to serve.
