Finnan Haddie either smoked haddock or cod.

DIRECTIONS

Simmer finnan haddie in water to cover 10 to 15 minutes. Drain, saving stock. Melt butter or margarine; add onion, green pepper, and pimiento; cook until onion is soft but not brown. Blend in paprika, Ac'cent*, and flour. Measure 1-1/3 cups of the stock; blend with evaporated milk; add. Stir over low heat until thickened. Add finnan haddie, broken into large pieces. Makes 6 servings.

*About Ac'cent: This is a form of monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is supposed to intensify flavor, but unessential in any recipe. Some people also have allergies to this ingredient.
