Cullen Skink is an old Scottish dish of smoked haddock, potato and onion cooked in milk. The name derives from the fishing village of Cullen in north-east Scotland, and 'skink' was the old Scots word for a soup or broth made from shin of beef. How it came to be attached to a fish soup is a bit of a mystery.
If you can't get smoked haddock, any smoked white fish will do. This is a fairly traditional Cullen skink recipe, but some people like to mess about with it and add leek or sweetcorn or peas. Cream might be substituted for some of the milk. But I find the original comforting, hearty and really delicious. And Cullen skink is amazingly easy to make!
