a cheesy lasagne dish made with a whole haddock fillet

Ingredients

280g smoked, boneless haddock fillets
You can also use smoked cod in this recipe or add a few prawns and maybe some sautéed leeks. For a vegetarian version, replace the fish with some sautéed leeks, grated cheese and a dollop of Dijon mustard.
325ml semi skimmed milk
1 dried bay leaf
Black pepper to season
20g butter
20g plain flour
200g canned creamed sweetcorn
Use any leftover creamed sweetcorn to make a quick Chinese style soup: just add chicken stock, diced cooked chicken, soy sauce and thicken with cornflour.
2 tbsp natural yogurt
1 medium egg
6 sheets no pre-cook lasagne

Recipe

  1. Place the fish in a non-stick frying pan, pour over the milk, add the bay leaf, and season with black pepper. Bring the milk gently to the boil, reduce the heat, and poach the fish for 5 minutes. Remove the fish from the pan with a slotted spoon onto a plate and flake into bite size pieces with a fork then set aside. Strain the milk into a jug, discarding the bay leaf.

  2. To make the sauce melt the butter in a non-stick saucepan then add flour and cook for 2 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon. Gradually pour in the strained milk, a little at a time and stir continuously to avoid lumps. Simmer the sauce gently, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes until thickened. Add the flaked fish to the sauce and mix gently so that the fish doesn’t break up.

  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C Fan/gas 4. Place the creamed sweetcorn, natural yogurt and egg in a bowl and whisk lightly with a fork until combined and season with black pepper. 

  4. To assemble spread half of the fish sauce over the base of an approximately 20cm x 16cm baking dish. Cover with a single layer of lasagne sheets, snapping them to fit, then top with half of the sweetcorn mixture and another layer of lasagne. Repeat the layers, fish sauce, lasagne sheets, then end with a layer of sweetcorn mixture on top.

  5. Place in the oven and bake for 35 minutes until the topping is golden.

  6. Suitable for freezing once cooked. Defrost in the fridge and reheat until piping hot throughout. Any leftovers can be stored covered in the fridge for up to 48 hrs and reheated thoroughly until piping hot.
