Peel and cut the potatoes into chunks. Chop the garlic cloves. Zest the lemons.


  1. 1 Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 10-15 minutes until tender.

  4. 4 Heat a small knob of the butter in a frying pan and add the garlic clove. Cook for 30 seconds.
  5. 5 Drain the spinach in a sieve and press with the back of a spoon to remove any excess moisture. Roughly chop the spinach.
  6. 6 Heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6 (180°C for fan ovens).
  7. 7 Mash the potatoes until smooth, then beat in the remaining butter, mustard, lemon zest and some freshly ground black pepper.
  8. 8 Flake the haddock, discarding the skin and bones, then gently fold into the potato, along with the spinach.
