  • Ingredients

    You'll Need

    • 4 fillets of haddock, skinned
    • 25g/1oz butter
    • 1 lemon

    For the filling

    • 25g/1oz butter
    • 2 leeks trimmed, washed and shredded
    • 200g/7oz baby spinach leaves

  • Method

    1. Prepare the filling. Sweat shredded leeks in the butter for 2 - 3 minutes to soften. Add the spinach leaves and cook briefly until just wilted. Place ingredients into a colander and squash out juices using a potato masher. Combine leek and spinach mix with remaining filling ingredients.

    2. Lay haddock fillets flat on a chopping board. Spread with the filling and roll up. Rest in a shallow ovenproof dish lined with baking parchment. Dot with butter and lemon juice. Cover with wetted baking parchment and cook for 20 - 25 minutes until the fish is just cooked.

    3. Serve with new potatoes and sprigs of watercress.
