  • Frying pan
  • Saucepan
  • Casserole or soup pot
  • Chopping board


  • 300 grams smoked haddock
  • 150 grams bacon
  • 50 grams butter
  • 400 ml milk
  • 350 ml water
  • 1 large potato
  • 1 white onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 bayleaf
  • 1 sweetcorn
  • 3 tablespoon parsley


  • Peel the garlic, potato and onion.
  • Finely dice and onion and garlic, and cut the potato into small cubes. 
  • Place the fish into a pan, pour over the milk and bring slowly to the boil, then remove from the heat, cover, and leave for five minutes. Carefully take the smoked haddock out with a slotted spoon and set to one side, but keep the milk as we will need it later.

  • Meanwhile boil the corn for 5 to 6 minutes until tender and then remove and leave it to cool, also conserving the water.
  • Remove the sweet corn kernels from the cob with a knife.

  • Slice the bacon into thin strips and fry in a separate frying pan until crispy, then also set aside on a plate with some kitchen paper to absorb any excess fat.

  • Place the butter in a thick bottom casserole or soup pan and heat over medium. 
  • Add the onions and once translucent, add the garlic and potato for another 1-2 minutes. 
  • Pour over the reserved cooking water and bring to a gentle boil and allow the flavours to infuse for 10 to 15 minutes until the potato is tender.
  • Using a potato masher, gently mash the potato into the liquid and then stir in the reserved milk. 
  • Turn down the heat to low and stir in the sweetcorn and flaked the fish to slowly reheat them.
  • Season to taste - you may need more salt than you think as the milk and potato will have absorbed a lot of it. 
  • Ladle the soup into warm bowls and sprinkle with the crispy bacon and chopped parsley.
