Smoked Haddock and Celeriac Layer Bake ... reduced / lower carb dish



Back in 2011 Eddie wrote about 'Great Grub Celeriac' and still to this day it is one of our favourite lower carb vegetables. This recipe, for a delicious bake, brings together the rich and earthy tastes of smoked haddock, onion and celeriac to create a warm, hearty dish that is layered with different flavours.

Ingredients:
Serves Two
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 small onion, sliced
1 rosemary sprig, leaves picked and chopped
2 smoked haddock fillets
200ml (1/3pt) milk
1 dried bay leaf
pinch nutmeg
1 garlic clove, halved
250g (8oz) celeriac finely sliced
75ml (3fl oz.) double (heavy) cream
20g (3/4oz) Gruyère cheese, grated
salad, to serve

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to gas 3, 170°C, fan 150°C. Heat the oil in a large pan, then cook the onion and rosemary with a pinch of salt for 5 minutes, or until softened. 
2. Put the fish, skin-side down, in a pan with the milk, bay leaf and nutmeg. Gently bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 4 minutes.
3. Transfer the fish to a plate with a slotted spoon, reserving 75ml (3fl oz) poaching liquid. Flake the fish and discard the skin.
4. Rub a small baking dish with the garlic. Add a layer of celeriac, followed by a layer of fish and the onion mixture; season with black pepper. Repeat until the ingredients are used up, finishing with a layer of celeriac.
5. In a jug, combine the reserved poaching liquid and the cream. Pour it over the celeriac and scatter with the cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.

6. Remove the foil and increase the heat to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Bake for 25 minutes more, or until golden. Depending on your oven it may need longer - check before serving... with salad.

Hello Missy, many thanks for your comment and question.

"Celery is popular in various cuisines, but many people are unfamiliar with the root that is closely related to it. Celeriac, more commonly known as celery root, is in the same family as celery. Celery is cultivated for its stalk and leaves, but celery root is harvested for its root.
The Health Benefits of Celery Root (Celeriac)
Celeriac offers loads of health benefits. Besides being a lower carb starch, it contains plenty of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber which benefit your cells, bones, and immune system.

Finnan Haddie my mother always called it....Wonderful with celeriac, I am sure. But that is still a bit more expensive in my neck of the woods. Still I think I'll have to try this sometime.

Yum, dishes like that always look inviting. I've passed that vegetable in the shop and have never tried it! I must get educated in the ways of celeriac :D)

I suppose this could be adapted for a non-seafood meat.

Hello there and thanks for your comment.

I always think Haddock and leek works well together and would go well with the celeriac too, this recipe is quite easy to adapt :)

Bon Appetit!

All the best Jan

I looked in the fish drawer in the freezer and there was only salmon so I made this with salmon and it is delicious. Plenty left for tomorrow as well.
Thank you, Jean

The recipe looks nice although I've never tried celeriac. I remember when I was young, celery came with a little root on it and I used to love that bit.
