A prize-winning Arbroath chef was in Leith on Thursday with Secretary for Rural Affairs and the Environment, Richard Lochhead.
Adam Newth, Seafood Scotland’s Young Scottish Seafood Chef of the Year, has created an easy to make haddock bake, the St Andrew’s Day Fish Dish.
Mr Lochhead is calling on Scots to enjoy a ‘St Andrew’s Night In’ and celebrate our national day with a homemade fish dish – either trying out Adam’s recipe or creating something tasty with the wealth of fine fish, seafood and wider seasonal produce that Scotland has to offer.
Aside from his Young Scottish Seafood Chef accolade, Adam was also named Young Scottish Chef of the Year earlier this year. His Arbroath upbringing confirmed his love of Scotland’s seafood from an early age which led him to create a fun and easy meal that all the family will enjoy this St Andrew’s Day.
Using sustainably sourced North Sea haddock with a selection of potatoes, onions and peas and topped with golden breadcrumbs, this is the perfect way to make fish first choice on the menu for a St Andrew’s Night In.
Adam commented: “When it comes to creating hearty Scottish cuisine, I am spoiled for choice with the wealth of quality produce here in Scotland.
“Coming from Arbroath, I’ve always loved seafood, and to create the St Andrew’s Day Fish Dish, I chose smoked North Sea haddock, to take a twist on the traditional fish pie, perfect fare for the winter evenings.”
