A simple yet delicious version of a Masterchef winning dish, easy to prepare and adjusted so as to make it suitable for any low-carb dietary requirement. Choose cod or other similar fish, if you can't source haddock.
  • 20g (1 handful) of fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 400g wild-caught smoked haddock fillet (cut into 4 pieces)
  • 100g thin pancetta slices
  • 2 eggs
  • 500ml whole milk
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 20g capers (drained)
  • 2 slices queenketo protein bread
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 1 baby shallot (minced)
  • 1 handful of fresh parsley (2 TBSP chopped)
  1. cook pancetta slices until crispy and curled, and set aside.
  2. lay spinach leaves on your serving plates.
  3. toast bread slices, let them cool, then place them in a food processor; pulse a few times until you obtain coarse crumbs and set aside.
  4. boil eggs for 10 mins, then cut each in half and separate egg whites from yolks.
  5. whilst the eggs cook, place haddock pieces in a pan just large enough to accommodate them side by side, then add milk and bay leaves - you'll need enough milk to mostly submerge the fish - add more if necessary.
  6. cover with lid and bring to the boil over medium heat, then immediately flip the fish over, turn heat off and leave to rest, lid on.
  7. put butter, minced shallot and breadcrumbs in a small frying pan; cook on high heat for 2 mins.
  8. chop egg whites and yolks, scoop them into the breadcrumb frying pan, then add chopped parsley and capers.
  9. lift the fish out of the milk using a straining ladle and place it over the spinach leaves.
  10. finally, top with the polonaise sauce (re-heated if necessary) and enjoy immediately.
