Recipe type: Main Course
Cuisine: Irish
Serves: 4
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless filets of cod
  • 2 ounces salted butter
  • 2 ounces all purpose flour
  • 2 Cups (1/2 litre) milk
  • 3 1/2 ounces grated cheese (Cheddar)
  • 2 ounces grated cheese (for scones)
  • 2 ounces salted butter (for scones)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (for scones)
  • 1 pinch salt (for scones)
  • egg (for scones)
  1. Place cod filets in the bottom of a round oven dish.
  2. Make a cheese sauce with 2 ounces each of butter and flour, 1/2 litre milk and 3 1/2 oz grated cheese: pour over fish.
  1. Then make scone dough -- rub 2 ounces butter into 8 ounces of flour with 1 teaspoon baking powder, and pinch of salt. Add 2 ounces grated cheese, preferably mature Cheddar or a mixture of that and Parmesan.
  2. Drop 1 egg yolk into the mixture and add enough milk to make a workable dough.
  3. Roll out to a thickness of 1/2 inch and cut into small rounds with a scone cutter or a glass.
  4. Disburse these rounds on top of the sauce, so that they just about cover the surface; glaze them with a little milk, sprinkle some more grated cheese over them and bake in a hot oven (450 F) for 25 to 30 minutes, until the scones are golden brown.
