  • Sure Gwen! It's really easy:

    I take a fry pan that has a lid and put about a 1/2 inch of milk in it.
    I add some spices, usually a couple of bay leaves, 5 peppercorns, and a little sprinkle of thyme.
    I let that heat up ,stirring often on med/high until it almost boils.
    Then I add my haddock, salted and peppered on both sides. (any firm fish fillet will do)
    I cover the pan and turn it to low.
    Haddock is usually a thin fillet, so they are flaky in about 4 or 5 min. I spoon a little milk from the pan over them at the very end to be sure the top is moist. Take out the fish and set it aside.

    Then I pour the contents of the pan through a sieve into a little pot and add a few Tbs. of butter (and sometimes fresh parsley) and reduce for a couple of minutes.

    Hope it works well for you!

  • Lol! I hate auto CHANGE!

    I use 2% milk. I should add I think it's really good on the mashed potatoes with peas. That seems to be the perfect combo.
