Haddock with a Lemon Sauce

Traditionally, lemon is a fantastic flavour that works well with all sorts of fish. Serve this lemon haddock with some buttered new potatoes.

Ingredients List:
300ml fish stock
2 bay leaves
Peppercorns
1 egg
Sprigs of dill
4 haddock fillets
1 lemon
2 tsp. arrowroot

Method of Preparation:
1) Zest the lemon and then cut it in two and squeeze all the juice from it.

2) Place the stock, lemon zest, bay leaves, peppercorns and sprigs of dill into a saucepan and bring the liquid to a simmer. Place the haddock fillets into the liquor and cook them for around 8 minutes or until flaking and tender.

3) Drain the stock and reserve 150ml of it.

4) Mix the lemon juice and the arrowroot in a saucepan, stirring all the time until combined and thickened. Add the stock in to the mixture, very slowly, stirring all the time until smooth and thickened.

5) Whisk the egg in a jug and then pour it into the sauce mixture very slowly, whisking constantly for around 4 minutes to prevent the egg from curdling. Once thickened, pour the sauce over the fish fillets.
