Cullen skink-Scottish fish soup

180 - - -

Hello, my dear. The working week is gaining momentum. We have energized a rich meaty soups Monday and Tuesday, now we have to take a breath. And so today we will have fish soup. It is no less rich than the previous soup, but much easier. "Skink" in the language of the Scottish Celts means "essence," well, now it's just a very thick soup. "Cullen," well, it is a small seaside town in which he was once invented. So, "Cullen skink" is "a thick soup from Cullen." The components of this soup is very simple - flavorful cut Presolana and smoked haddock, potatoes, onion and cream - it is because they fishermen pretty Scottish village Cullen cooked first "Cullen skink". Fish cooked in milk, then add potatoes and other ingredients. And potatoes can add a lot, because the locals this soup can sometimes replace a whole meal. Traditionally, as I said, "Cullen skink" was made from smoked haddock, but now use fresh. I cooked a soup made from fresh haddock (my husband banned all smoked!) and milk, but believe me, this option is no worse. And I have a surprise bonus to the "Star of the week".
