  • 400g smoked haddock
  • 4 eggs
  • 800g - 1kg linguine
  • Good pinch to taste smoked sea salt
  • Good grind pepper
  • 1/4 small glass white wine
  • 2-3 small shallots
  • small cup double cream

Recipe Method

Measure out enough water (usually about 3 small cups) to cook the haddock. Put this in a small pan, and bring to a simmer. Add the smoked haddock and simmer for around 3 minutes. Remove the haddock (it doesn't have to be fully cooked at this point), and reserve the cooking water from the haddock in a jug. We'll use this as a smokey stock.

To make the sauce, slice, then fry off the shallots in a medium hot frying pan until soft and gently browning. Finely slice the garlic and fry off for a couple of minutes. Add the white wine, and cook this on a gentle heat until all the alcohol has burnt off (the acidic fumes will vapourise, so you can smell when this is done). Add the double cream and a splash of the smoked haddock cooking stock and simmer on a low heat for a few minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Bring a pan of salted water to the boil, then cook the tagliatelle as per the packet instructions (usually 10-12 mins for dried).

Cook the eggs in a pan of simmering water until just soft inside - around 6-8 mins, then gently peel.

Combine the smoked haddock with the sauce, then mix in the cooked tagliatelle and boiled eggs, serve :-)
