You ‘batter’ believe it – Smoked Haddock and Prawn Pancakes

As you know, on Friday I made Brunch of American Style Blueberry Pancakes They were lush, here is a Link if you’d like to take a look.


It is actual Pancake Day today, Shrove Tuesday, I thought I would make a savoury version, with enough left over for pudding 😉


I have 2 portions of Iceland’s frozen Smoked Haddock left from my January shop,


and some huge frozen prawns so I thought I would make a delicious creamy cheese sauce to nestle the flakes of smoked fish and a few big king prawns in with a sprinkle of cheddar on top.

I start by making 8 pancakes, using 100g plain flour, 300ml milk, 2 eggs, whisked together and left for an hour, heat a frying pan and add a teaspoon of oil.


add a ladle of the batter, and swirl to form a thin layer.


Cook for a minute or so on each side and set aside.

When ready, turn in the oven to 200 and get ready with a large ovenproof dish (or 2 small ones in my case) for the filled Pancakes.


I start poaching the fish in 300ml milk and 50g butter, gently cook till the fish is cooked through and flakey, the prawns were added for a minute or so, so they are just cooked through, they will go into the oven too, and I don’t want them to go rubbery.


remove the fish from the milk and set aside.


With the flavoured milk, add 30g of plain flour to about 30ml milk and make into a thin paste, then add to the warm milk, whisking till starting to thicken, add 100g of grated strong cheddar.


I flake the fish and add to the thick sauce, add some fresh chopped parsley (as I had some) spoon into 4 Pancakes, leaving some sauce, add a couple of the huge Prawn to each.


I fold the Pancakes to make a cone shape, and place 2 in each oven proof dish, adding some Asparagus spears and halved vine tomatoes (they needed using) and dressing them with the remaining sauce and a sprinkle of grated cheese.


Pop into a hot oven (200) till bubbling – delicious….


The remaining pancakes – well – pudding of course, a squirt of lemon and a shake of sugar – LUSH… 😇

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
