  • 1 lb finnan haddie
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 pinch nutmeg (more for fragrance than flavor) (optional)


  1. Cut the onions in half, slice thinly, then cut the slices in thirds.
  2. Place the smoked fish,(cut in half if you need to make it fit into the skillet)onions and bay leaf into a large skillet and cover with water.
  3. Bring to a boil over medium heat and simmer for about 10 - 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from pan, drain all liquid, remove any skin or bones, discard bay leaf and flake the fish with a fork.
  5. In the same skillet, melt butter, whisk in flour and cook over medium-low heat, stirring until the flour is foaming but not browned - about 1 or 2 minutes.
  6. Over low heat, gradually add in 1 1/2 cups of milk, bringing to a boil, whisking constantly until the sauce thickens.
  7. Season with salt, pepper and optional nutmeg, and leave to simmer slowly for an additional 1-2 minutes. If sauce is too thick, add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring constantly.
  8. Add the flaked fish and onions into the sauce, stirring to combine and warm throughout.
  9. Serve with boiled potatoes.
