If you think you usual chowders is richly flavoured then try this Scottish type of chowder, it will definitely render your usual chowder tasteless. Cullen Skink is a traditional thick Scottish soup prepared using smoked fish (primarily haddock), potatoes and onions, a local specialty of the town of Cullen in Moray. Usually served as a starter at formal Scottish dinners, it is also popularly served as an everyday dish across the northeast of Scotland, for me the richness and heartiness of this dish is enough for it to be served as a mains.
Today I will be making some but since smoked haddock is not available from where I am so I am substituting it with another smoked fish, possible substitutes can be cod, flounder or sole as they all taste the same and has the same texture.
Love chowders and fish soups, this one looks amazing. Looks so hardy and flavourful. Marked for cool temps because it is too hot here for soup right now lol.
If it’s anything like seafood chowder, my girl would love it, her favourite!
Oh my! It looks delicious! I love haddock! I will definitively try your recipe. Thanks for sharing.
