  • 1 litre of double cream
  • 1 litre of single cream
  • Bunch of tarragon
  • Basic potato mashed topping

Melt butter and flour together until thick. Add chopped leeks and onion to mix.

Slowly add milk to pan, stirring with a wooden spoon to form a white or béchamel sauce.

Slowly add creams (double first) to thicken the mixture and stir slowly with a wooden spoon. When the consistency is thick and smooth, add the smoked haddock, shrimp, cockle meat – remove from heat so as not to break up the fish.
