Smoked Haddock on Champ with Poached Egg and Grain Mustard Sauce

2 portions

2 x 140g/5oz portions of smoked haddock
freshly ground white pepper
175ml/6floz fish stock
60ml/2floz dry white wine
175g/6oz mash 
3 sliced spring onions
2 poached eggs
1 tsp whole grain mustard
150ml/5floz whipping cream

Make sure all of the pin bones are removed from the haddock and season with the pepper. Combine the stock and the white wine in a pan large enough to take the fish fillets side by side and lay these into the stock. Bring this to the simmer and gently poach for about 3 minutes until cooked. Remove the fish and keep warm and covered. Strain the stock and set over a high heat to reduce by two thirds. Have ready a pan of hot water to reheat the poached eggs in.

Once the stock has reduced add the cream and the mustard and reduce until it just starts to thicken. Place the eggs in the hot water to reheat for about 30 seconds. Mix the spring onions into the hot mash, place a mound of this in the centre of each plate. Carefully remove the skin from the fish and place a fillet of the fish on the mash. Drain the eggs and sit an egg on each piece of fish, pour the sauce over the egg and around the plate.
