When great flavour combines with tender flakiness, it's easy to see why haddock is a long-standing favourite amongst us Brits. Not just a cod substitute, haddock has greater delicacy of both taste and texture than its much-loved big brother, and is versatile enough to carry off a broad range of accompaniments, from creamy to spicy, herby to citrus. And, of course, there's no beating haddock deep fried in super-crisp batter and served with vinegar-splashed chips. Our tummies are rumbling just thinking of it.
Haddock is commonly found throughout the North Atlantic, favouring deep, cold water where it lives in extensive shoals and feeds on shellfish. One of the 'big five' most commonly eaten fish in the UK, it's important to be sure that you're buying your haddock from sustainable sources. At Coombe Farm Organic we source our fish from fishermen who make their catch to The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standards, working with suppliers who harvest seafood sustainably they don't take undersized fish, don't fish for haddock alone and avoid fishing when the fish are spawning.

Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
Fisheries catch fillet and freeze all sustainable and organic fish before it arrives to us by blast freezing. It’s done at the point of the fishmongers filleting the fish, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh fish would be much more challenging.
Sustainability is a key concept when it comes to choosing the fish that you eat. It's measured in three ways. Firstly, the number of fish taken from the sea must leave behind a healthy, productive population that can reproduce quickly enough to support the levels at which they're fished. Secondly, environmental impact on habitats, ecosystems and other species must be minimised. And thirdly, fisheries must be well managed, be humane and be able to adapt to environmental changes. At Coombe Farm Organic, we work with fishing partners who fish to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standards with a responsible attitude that reflects our organic farming ethos.

Baked, grilled, fried or poached, haddock is quick and easy to cook. Leave the skin on if you want it to hold its shape. For a really quick and simple supper, dust the haddock with seasoned plain flour and fry in just a spritz of oil until it's cooked through and starting to brown on the outside, add the juice of a lemon, some capers and a handful of chives and parsley to the pan. Bubble briefly before serving with crushed new potatoes and seasonal greens.
