Great recipe! I am certain that the (tiny) dash of nutmeg gives a good total flavor. Many are afraid of using nutmeg, but it is a super supplement - IF it isn't 'over-used'.

Thanks. I agree with use of nutmeg, I even add it to spaghetti sauce, helps cut down on tartness.

Very tasty. I love haddock fillets and your recipe is mouth watering. My favourite seafood dish is fish pie using haddock and smoked coley. I sprinkle fresh garden peas into the mixture. Very good article (as usual) I shall have to try your recipe soon.
