Creamed Finnan Haddie

November 27, 2018

2 pounds finnan haddie (or smoked haddock or cod)
Water
6 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 tablespoons minced green pepper
2 tablespoons minced pimiento
1 teaspoon paprika
6 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk

Wipe finnan haddie with a clean, damp cloth and put in a sauce pot. Add just enough water to cover and simmer over low heat 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Then, lift it out and rain, reserving the liquor. Coarsely flake fish with a fork and set aside.

Melt butter in a large skillet. Add onion, green pepper and pimiento and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender but not brown. Remove from heat. Blend paprika and flour into onion mixture. Measure 1 1/3 cups of the reserved liquor and combine with the milk. Slowly add and stir into flour mixture. Place over medium heat and cook about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add the flaked fish and stir gently; heat thoroughly. Serve garnished with parsley, if desired. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
