To begin, boil the potatoes in salted boiling water until tender. Meanwhile, add the cream, saffron, oil and garlic to a pan and warm over a very low heat to infuse the saffron into the mixture. Whisk to emulsify
  • 600g of floury potatoes, such as King Edward or Maris Piper
  • 75ml of olive oil
  • 1 pinch of saffron
  • 150ml of double cream
  • 1 pinch of garlic, crushed

Drain the potatoes, allow to steam and dry then pass through a potato ricer into a bowl. Beat in the infused saffron mixture until you have a beautifully rich, smooth mash. Season generously and set aside

To cook the haddock, fold each fillet carefully, either in half or into three folds, depending on the shape of the fillet. Place on small squares of greaseproof paper and add to a steamer. Cook for 3–5 minutes, depending on size, until cooked through. Remove and allow to rest briefly before seasoning with a little salt

Meanwhile, chop together the lemon zest, parsley and garlic to make the gremolada. Spoon the mash onto plates, top with the haddock and scatter over the gremolada. Drizzle over some extra virgin olive oil and serve
