I’m a big fan of Indian smoked haddock fish cakes and traditional Kedgeree.

But when it comes to chowder, there are so many good ones that it’s hard to decide. 

Mix it with anything cheesy or creamy and it becomes the ultimate comfort food on a chilly day.

Whatever you make with it, you are in for one mouth-watering dish with these smoked haddock recipes. 

1. Smoked Haddock Gratin

Smoky, savory, cheesy, and creamy, this fish gratin has it all. 

It has layers of smoked haddock, potatoes, green onions, chives, and a creamy mustard cheese sauce.

Breadcrumbs and cheese top it off. 

A dish like this was made for sharing. So try it out at your next family dinner

2. Smoked Haddock with Creamy Tomato Pepper Sauce

Smoked haddock is excellent in casseroles.

It’s especially great when you combine it with a creamy sauce like this tomato-pepper delight. 

Way better than store-bought, the sauce is so simple to make that anyone can do it.

You saute all the veggies, mash them, and combine them with sour cream. 

Pour all that over a layer of smoked haddock and top with gouda.

From there, let the oven handle the rest. 

3. Cullen Skink (Scottish Smoked Fish Chowder)

Here is the first of many amazing smoked haddock chowders on this list. 

Cullen skink is a Scottish take on fish chowder that is just about as thick and creamy as they come. 

Swimming inside the lavish broth are tender pieces of smoked haddock and slightly mashed potatoes

While you could smoke the haddock yourself, I say go with already smoked.

That way, you can get to eating this chowder faster!

4. Smoked Haddock & Mash 

This dish is just about as homey as it gets!

The buttery mashed potatoes meld with leeks and green onions. There’s also a handful of spinach in there, too. 

Stacked on top is a smoked haddock filet and a poached egg to finish it off.

5. Traditional Kedgeree

Kedgeree is a popular British dish with Indian roots.

The original version started with lentils and now it’s all about smoked haddock. 

Lucky for us because it’s incredible!

The fragrant spices, fresh parsley, and lemon add panache to basic white rice.

All that only gets better with an entire pound of smoked haddock and hard-boiled eggs.

6. Smoked Haddock Risotto

If you’re making risotto, go all out with this smoked haddock version.

The smoked haddock imparts a strong smoky flavor that goes great with the richness of the risotto.

And here’s a fun secret. You poach the fish in a milky stock before adding it to the risotto!

7. Creamed Leeks and Smoked Haddock  

Smoked haddock pairs well with leeks. So why not make them the main highlight of a dish?

This creamy and buttery concoction is super cozy and scrumptious. 

You’ll definitely want some good crusty sourdough bread to go along with it.

8. Smoked Haddock, Leek, and Butterbean Bake 

If you want to add more substance to your smoked haddock and leeks, toss in some butter beans

Those succulent beans make this dish very filling. Plus, they add more protein. 

Not to mention, their buttery flavor is the perfect match for the smokiness of the haddock.  

9. Irish Fish Chowder

Seafood lovers, brace yourself. This Irish fish chowder will have you coming back bowl after bowl!

Pieces of smoked haddock, mussels, and salmon are swimming in a creamy broth with bits of smoked bacon. 

So you get a lot of surf with a little bit of turf in there, too.

10. Smoked Haddock Fish Cakes

Even those who aren’t too big on seafood won’t be able to say no to fish cakes. 

They’re a meaty mixture of smoked haddock and mashed potatoes bound together in a patty. 

Breadcrumbs coat the outside with a nice crunch. On the inside, they remain flaky and fork-tender.

11. Smoked Haddock Rarebit

Rarebit is a Welsch dish that involves pouring a cheesy sauce all over bread. 

Perfect as it is, I think you’ll love this revamped version. 

It still has bread and a cheesy sauce.

What’s different is that the sauce gets a touch of mustard and a dash of Worcestershire. 

A thick filet of smoked haddock and spinach is also piled on top. 

12. Smoked Haddock & Sweetcorn Chowder 

This smoky, sweet, and creamy chowder only takes 30 minutes to make. 

That means you can enjoy it any night of the week!

It’s a chunky mix of tender potatoes, sweet corn kernels, smoky haddock, celery, and onions simmered in skim milk and broth. 

So it’s full of protein and calcium, too. 

13. Smoked Haddock and Prawn Tagliatelle

Seafood pasta like this is hard to forget!

The double cream coats the tender tagliatelle in decadence. If that weren’t great enough, it doubles up on the seafood!

You get juicy prawns and bits of smoked haddock in every bite.

14. Smoked Haddock with Tenderstem Broccoli, Spinach, and Conchiglie

Here’s another easy seafood pasta dinner you can whip up in 15 minutes.

The combination of green veggies, conchiglie pasta, and smoked haddock touches on a range of flavors and textures.

Then there’s the creamy bacon mustard sauce that’s divine! 

15. Spaghetti with Smoked Haddock and Baby Radicchio Grumolo

While I’m thinking of quick pasta dinners, I have to mention this one. 

It entails sauteing smoked haddock with garlic, cooked spaghetti, and radicchio. 

Rather than drowning it in sauce, you plate it with a squeeze of lemon, parsley, and red chili pepper flakes.

Ready in under 20 minutes, it’s hard to believe it’s just that quick!

16. Indian Spiced Smoked Haddock Fish Cakes with Tomato Relish

I can’t stop raving about this Indian recipe! These mouthwatering smoked haddock cakes are highly addicting. 

The crispy and tender cakes are full of smoked haddock, mashed potatoes, and a sensational spice blend

There’s even a tomato relish for dipping!

They do take a while to make, which is probably a good thing. Otherwise, I would make them every day. 

17. Lemon Herb Crusted Haddock (Under 30 Minutes)

Easy seafood recipes like this sure do come in handy during the work week. 

You slather garlic mayo on top of smoked haddock and spoon a lemon herb breadcrumb mixture on top.

Then, toss it in the oven with cherry tomatoes.

For serving, add a side of garlicky spinach and white rice. Use leftover rice and it gets even easier!

18. Luxury Fish Pie

This fish pie is what your holidays have been missing all along.

It’s a legendary dish that’s heavy on seafood and super cozy to boot!

The filling is a lavish mix of smoked haddock, crayfish tails, and lobster bisque.

To top it off is none other than buttery and cheesy mashed potatoes. 

Grab a plate, you’ll want to get in on this before it’s gone.

19. Smoked Haddock and Leek Risotto

Remember what I said about smoked haddock and leeks? It’s the perfect combo that’s even better in risotto.

This elegant dish warms your heart with all the comforting flavors of smoked fish, creamy rice, aromatic leeks, and parmesan cheese.

With all those rich and savory ingredients, you’ll want to add a bit of freshness with lemon and pea shoots.

20. Smoked Haddock Sweet Potato Hash

Forget rushing to do chores or running out to go from store to store.

Take a moment in the morning to savor your day off with this smoked haddock hash. 

Resting on top of the sweet potatoes, cherry tomatoes, and smoked haddock is a baked egg just waiting to ooze all over the plate.

All that’s missing now is a couple of dashes of hot sauce

21. Smoked Haddock & Spring Greens Pie

When was the last time you had a good savory pie? Well, I think you should make this one tonight!

The buttery green onion mashed potato topping is just about as comforting as it gets.

To make it even more extravagant is the cheesy smoked haddock layer hiding underneath. 

Even those who aren’t big on fish have to admit this is exquisite!

22. Smoked Haddock and Jalapeño Chowder

If you’re the type to appreciate a good bowl of homemade chowder, you’ll really enjoy this.

In each bite, you get smoky haddock, tender potato, spicy jalapeno, sweet corn, fatty bacon, and creamy broth.

But that’s not all because there’s sharp cheddar cheese and pickled jalapenos in there, too. 

23. Grilled Smoked Haddock with Spiced Potatoes

Looking for a haddock recipe to make for dinner? Throw a curveball into the mix with grilled smoked haddock. 

Tossing butter-brushed smoked haddock filets on the grill makes them extra smokey and rich. 

However, no fish dinner is complete without a complementary side. 

So I should mention this one comes with potatoes and spinach flavored with spices, garlic, ginger, and fresh chilies.

24. Smoked Haddock Potato Chowder

If the last chowder was a little too spicy, give this one a try.

The combination of smoked haddock, fork-tender potatoes, sweet corn, and the double cream broth make it super cozy. 

Add a handful of kale and it’s that much more nutritious. 

25. Simple Omelette Arnold Bennett

In the 1930s, a London hotel prepared a special omelet for writer Arnold Bennett.

It was obviously a hit because I’m now sharing it with you!

The breakfast dish entails poaching smoked haddock in milk.

Then, add it to eggs cooking in butter with single cream, parsley, and parmesan. 

To make it golden brown and bubbly, you finish it off under the broiler. 

It’s certainly not your typical omelet. But that’s what lazy weekend mornings are all about!
