Haddock with Warm Tomato Relish

 This dish can be on the table in about 10 minutes, with very little work involved. It really is surprisingly simple!

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 4 haddock fillets about 175g each, skin on
  • Salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • 3 tablesp. olive oil
  • 250g cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 8 scallions, chopped
  • 1 teasp. castor sugar
  • A splash of white wine vinegar
  • A few sprigs of thyme, leaves only
  • A small handful of fresh coriander, chopped

To Cook

Season the haddock with salt and pepper. Put 2 tablesp. of olive oil in frying pan and heat gently.  Add the fish to the pan, skin side down. Fry until the skin is golden and crisp and the fish is cooked two-thirds of the way through. Turn the fish over and cook the flesh side for another 1-2 minutes until just flaking. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain; keep warm.

Add the remaining tablesp. olive oil to the pan and sauté the tomatoes and scallions for a minute. Add the sugar and a splash of the wine vinegar. Cook over a high heat for a minute or two until the tomatoes are a little soft but still retain their shape. Season the tomatoes and add in the herbs.  Divide between 4 warm plates. Put the haddock fillets on top, skin side up and serve immediately with steamed potatoes or some nice bread to mop up the juices!

Chef’s Tip

If you would like to spice it up a little, add a red chilli which has been halved, deseeded and chopped, to the pan with the tomatoes.

Other fish you could use: Whiting, hake, monkfish.

Kerrygold Irish Stove-Top Potatoes with Aged Cheddar

Irish_Stove-Top_Potatoes_with_Kerrygold_Aged_Cheddar_Cheese

Serves:  4

This is a variation on the traditional way of cooking potatoes in a cast-iron frying pan over an open fire. Choose firm-fleshed potatoes for this recipe such as Roosters or Maris Piper as they will keep their shape during cooking and don’t break up. Of course this recipe could also be baked in the oven if you’d prefer. They’re delicious on their own with just a salad or try serving simply with grilled fish or a steak.

Dairygold Classic Scones

Classic Scones

12 mins

Plain scones are the cornerstone of Irish afternoon tea, especially when spread with Dairygold and a dollop of jam!

Ingredients

  • 175g Dairygold Baking Block
  • 900g plain flour
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs – hold a little back to glaze
  • 425ml milk to mix – hold 100ml back until needed

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mk 4.

Sieve the flour, sugar and baking powder together into a large mixing bowl.

Rub the Dairygold Baking Block into the dry ingredients until you’ve formed a breadcrumb texture.

In a separate bowl or jug, mix your eggs and milk together, then pour into the larger bowl, making a well in its centre.

Continue to mix until you have formed a soft dough, using the extra milk if needed.

Remove your dough from the bowl and knead lightly on a floured board before rolling it out to 1 inch in thickness.

Cut the dough out into rounds and brush them with the remaining egg to glaze.

Place on a baking sheet and bake in your preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.

To serve, spread with Dairygold and strawberry or raspberry jam.
