  • 6 oz plain flour; plus 3 tbsp
  • 2 oz salted peanuts finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3/4 pint milk or water mixed
  • butter for frying
  • 1 1/2 lb smoked haddock cod, or whiting fillets
  • 1 pint milk
  • 4 oz celery chopped
  • 2 tsp mild curry powder
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 5 tbsp single cream
  • 2 oz cheddar cheese grated
  • chopped parsley to garnish


  • To make the batter: whisk the 175 g (6 oz) flour, peanuts, eggs, oil and half the milk and water mixture until quite smooth. Whisk in the remaining liquid.
  • Melt a knob of butter in a 19 cm (7 1/2 inch) frying pan, tilting the pan so that the melted butter coats the base. Pour in enough batter to cover the base of the pan and cook for about 3 minutes until golden underneath. Turn and cook the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter to make twelve pancakes. Keep them covered.
  • Put the fish into a deep frying pan with the milk, cover and poach gently until the fish is quite tender and begins to flake¢â‚¬â€¯about 12 minutes. Strain off and reserve the fish stock.
  • Flake the fish, discarding the skin and bones.
  • Melt 50 g (2 oz) butter in a heavy-based pan, fry the celery and curry powder together for 1 minute, stirring. Remove from the heat, stir in the remaining flour, reserved fish stock and seasoning¢â‚¬â€¯be cautious with salt as the fish may be salty enough. Bring to the boil, stirring. Boil for 1 minute then remove from the heat and fold in the cream and flaked fish.
  • Grease a shallow ovenproof dish. Divide the filling between the pancakes, roll up and place side-by-side in a single layer in the dish. Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top and cover loosely with foil. Bake at 180‚°C (350‚°F) mark 4 for about 40 minutes. Serve really hot sprinkled with parsley.
