Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Creamed Haddock

This typical Irish recipe makes a nice change from the ubiquitous Corned Beef and Cabbage that so many people serve on St. Patrick's Day. But this recipe is good enough to serve all year round whenever you need a simple, comforting seafood dish. Feel free to substitute any white fish you have on hand for the haddock. For an even more special dish, top the fish with lightly sauteed prawns or shrimp along with the parsley. Another variation we like - although probably not traditional at all - is to add prepared horseradish to the sauce to taste.

6 haddock fillets
1/2 cup flour
White pepper
5 tablespoons melted butter
3/4 cup half-and-half
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Fresh parsley for garnish

Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Wash and pat the fillets dry. Mix together the flour, salt, and pepper on a plate and dip each fillet in the mixture and coat thoroughly. Dip each fillet into the melted butter and place in the hot pan. Brown the fish very quickly on each side, then add any remaining butter and flour, half-and-half, and mustard. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until the haddock is cooked through and the sauce is thickened. Garnish with parsley before serving.

Makes 6 servings.
