Smoked Mackerel Soufflé

Although the soufflé was originally a French speciality it made an impact on English cooking in the mid-19th century when cheese soufflé became a spectacular and popular party piece. Smoked fish makes a good soufflé base and you can replace the mackerel with trout or other smoked fish - even smoked salmon offcuts.

Milk - 200 ml (7 fl oz)
Onion and carrot slices - a few
Bay leaf - 1
Black peppercorns - 6
Plain flour - 2 tbsp
Butter - 25g (1 oz)
Cooked smoked mackerel - 75g (3 oz), skinned, boned and finely flaked
Eggs - 4, separated + 1 extra egg white

METHOD

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 °C / 350 °F / Gas 4. Butter a 1.3 litre (2¼ pint soufflé dish.
  2. Put the milk in a saucepan with the onion and carrot slices, bay leaf and peppercorns. Slowly bring to the boil, remove from the heat, cover and leave to infuse for 30 minutes. strain and reserve the milk.
  3. Put the flour, butter and reserved milk in a saucepan and heat, whisking continuously, until the sauce thickens, boils and is smooth. Simmer or 1-2 minutes. Leave to cool slightly.
  4. Beat the yolks into the cooled sauce, 1 at a time. Sprinkle the fish over the sauce. Stir in the fish until evenly blended. Whisk the egg whites until stiff.
  5. Mix one large spoonful of egg white into the sauce to lighten its texture. Gently pour the sauce over the remaining egg whites and cut and fold the ingredients together. Do not over-mix; fold lightly, using a metal spoon or plastic spatula, until the egg whites are just incorporated.
  6. Pour the soufflé mixture into the prepared dish. The mixture should come about three-quarters of the way up the side of the dish. Smooth the surface of the soufflé.
  7. Place the soufflé on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes. It should be golden brown on top, well risen and just firm to the touch with a hint of softness in the centre.


  8. Smoked Salmon Mousses

    Scottish salmon is regarded by many to have the best flavour of any. Scotland has always been famous for its traditional smoke-houses. They give flavour to the fish by smoking over woodchips and do not add any artificial additives. You don't need to buy whole slices of smoked salmon for this recipe, offcuts and odd pieces can be used which are much cheaper.
