Preparation method

  4. Flake the smoked haddock, discarding any skin or bones and fold into the potato mix. Fold in the parmesan and yoghurt, then season with black pepper to taste.

  5. Fill a deep pan with water and bring to the boil, the water should be at least 12cm/4½n deep.

  6. Add 1½ tablespoons vinegar for every litre of water.
