  • Place the milk, water and stock cubes into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  • Add the haddock fillet and gently poach for 2-3 minutes to just cook, the lift out with a slotted spoon and reserve.
  • Add the potatoes, onions, garlic and anchovy essence and gently simmer for 10-15 minutes until the spuds are cooked.
  • Meanwhile flake the partially cooked fish off the skin, leaving in nice chunks.
  • Once the potatoes are cooked, mix the flour and butter together well and whisk a little at a time into the simmering potatoes and onions, until nicely thickened, cook for 1 minute.
  • Using a potato masher, gently crush half the potatoes, this gives the soup and broth like texture.
  • Season well, then add the parsley, sweetcorn, cream and cooked haddock and stir through, and simmer for 30 seconds.
  • Serve.
