  • Step 1

    In a medium pan on a medium heat, add a splash of olive oil and add the onions, carrot, celery, chilli and bay leaf, and sweat for 10-12 minutes taking care not to colour (pop a lid on and turn the heat down if they start to colour).

  • Step 2

    In the meantime, in a small frying pan, toast off the spices and set aside.

  • Step 3

    When the vegetables are soft, add the toasted spices and stir in.

  • Step 4

    Add the chicken stock and the diced potatoes and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 minutes until the potatoes are almost cooked.

  • Step 5

    Add the cream and bring to the boil.

  • Step 6

    Add the haddock and simmer for five minutes, then add the coriander and stir in.
