Reduce the liquid for 30 seconds – 1 minute. Next add the double cream and bring to the boil, simmer for 1–2 minutes and season to taste. Take off the heat.
  • For the glaze, in a small saucepan combine the soya sauce, rice wine, sherry, sugar and the ginger. Simmer for 2–4 minutes until a light syrup forms. Let cool. Mash the baking potatoes and knob of butter and some chopped parsley, season to taste. Take haddock out of oven and brush with the glaze that has now cooled.
  • Place under hot grill until golden brown colour. Place mash into the centre of plate in a plastic ring mould 6cm diameter/6cm deep (21/2” x 21/2”). Remove the mould and place haddock on top.
  • Reheat the sauce on low heat till hot. Assembly Place sauce round the potato and the haddock that’s on the plate. Garnish with sprigs of chervil and parsley on the top. Serve with a cold glass of chardonnay.
