Boiled Haddock with Shrimp Sauce
Boiled Haddock is reminiscent to our childhoods to the days when it was served almost on a weekly basis, drowned in ketchup and Rye Bread. This recipe takes that classic to a whole new level with the Shrimp Sauce.
This recipe is served with Boiled Potatoes, green salad, cucumber, and most importantly the Salties Rye Bread.
