Finnan Haddie

Named after Findon, Scotland, a fishing village near Aberdeen, finnan haddie ( haddock ) is partially boned, lightly salted and smoked haddock. It was originally smoked over peat fires, a rarity now in wide commercial production. In Scotland, finnan haddie has long been a favorite breakfast dish. It's available whole or in fillets and can be refrigerated, tightly wrapped, for up to a month. Finnan haddie is best baked, broiled or poached. It's generally served with a cream sauce.
