Souffléd Smoked Haddock Pancakes

Souffléd Smoked Haddock Pancakes
  • Serves: 4
  • Prep: 20mins
  • Cook: 30mins

Ingredients

  • For the pancakes:
  • 40g/1½ oz. plain flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 large British Lion egg
  • 100ml/4 fl oz. milk
  • A little oil for frying
  • For the filling:
  • 225g/8oz smoked haddock fillet
  • 300ml/ ½ pint milk
  • 25g/1oz butter
  • 50g/2oz plain flour
  • 5ml/1 tsp Dijon mustard (optional)
  • 2 large British Lion eggs

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas Mark 6. To make the filling, place the smoked haddock fillet, skin side up in a frying pan, pour over the milk. Bring slowly to a boil, then cover the pan and gently simmer for 4 minutes. Lift the fish from the milk, remove and discard the skin and any bones, gently flake the fish.
  2. Pour the milk into a small pan, add the butter and flour, bring to the boil, using a balloon whisk to constantly stir the mixture until sauce forms, boils and thickens. It will be very thick. Cook for 1 minute over a low heat, then remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Stir the egg yolks into the thick sauce along with the mustard if using. In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  4. Use a large metal spoon to stir the haddock and a third of the egg whites into the sauce mix. Then add the remaining egg whites to the bowl and gently fold into the sauce.
  5. Place the flour, salt and eggs in a large bowl. Add half of the milk and whisk well until the mixture is lump free. Add the remaining milk and whisk again until smooth. If you prefer, place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour the batter into a jug.
  6. Heat a 20cm/8in diameter non-stick frying pan until hot, drizzle a little oil over the centre and wipe around the pan with a piece of kitchen paper. Pour a little of the batter into the pan and immediately tilt the pan to spread the batter thinly and evenly over the base. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until the top is set and the base is golden.
  7. Flip over the pancake and cook for a further 1-2 minutes or until the base is golden. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and keep warm. Use the batter to make a further 3 pancakes in the same way.
  8. Lay 4 pancakes on an oiled baking tray. Divide the souffléd smoked haddock between them, spooning it over one half of each pancake. Fold over the pancakes.
  9. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the filling is risen and golden brown. Use a fish slice to quickly transfer the soufflé pancakes onto serving plates and serve with a little salad and wedge of lemon.

What can you find in your kitchen tonight? #foodinspo #mondaymeals #leftovers #dinner #eggsThese spicy potato Scotch eggs are a great vegetarian addition to any lunchbox or weekend meal with family/friends. Serve with mango chutney and salad and you’re ready to go! #lunchboxideas #britishlioneggs #britisheggweek #scotcheggs #letsgetcrackingHere are some of our top tips for avoiding that hangry feeling. For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
