Eleven Plus parents often have something to worry about. Life, work, children, relations, the eleven plus and examination dates are but a few. There is also the need to keep food on the table that the candidate will eat. If we are asked which food is good for the brain it is likely that the word `fish’ will spring to mind.
Parents could consider a Finnan Haddie. This is a recipe that will enter the mind of any parents who have already had children through the eleven plus. Brand new parents may need a little help.
A Finnan haddie is the popular name for smoked salted haddock. It is lightly salted and does not usually require soaking. Some children may prefer to have the bones removed from the whole finnan haddie. It is suggested that the haddie can be soaked in warm water for about five minutes.
1.5 pounds of haddock
1.5 cups of milk
3 tablespoons butter
0.25 teaspoons of paprika.
Place the haddie in a greased baking tin. Add the milk and butter. Sprinkle with paprika.
Bake in a moderate oven for as long as your child takes to complete a section of a paper.
Call it a day once the family has enjoyed the meal.
