To prepare the soup
Heat the Truly Grass Fed Ghee Clarified Butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the diced onion and sauté for 5 minutes until cooked but not brown.
Add the bacon and cook until lightly crispy. Then add thyme sprigs, stir in the plain flour, mixing well before pouring in the white wine and fish stock or vegetable stock. Whisk the mixture at this stage to distribute the flour.
Increase the heat and simmer for 3 minutes, stirring from time to time.
Add the diced potatoes, paprika and milk.
Simmer for 8 minutes, check the seasoning, adding salt and white pepper.
Add the smoked haddock and salmon and simmer on a low heat for 8 to 10 minutes until the fish is just cooked, then add in the prawns and cook through, this should take a further 3 minutes approximately.
Stir in the cream and check the seasoning again.
Ladle into soup bowls, garnish with chopped parsley and serve with lemon sliced and the warm cheesy scones with butter.
2 large Honeycrisp apples, peeled & chopped into 1-inch cubes
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
2 teaspoons water small pinch of ground cinnamon
small pinch of ground nutmeg
sea salt to taste
pepper to taste
In a small mixing bowl, combine the apple cider vinegar, pure maple syrup, and water.
In a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan and place it on a plate to cool.
Over medium-high heat, melt the ghee in the same skillet used to cook the bacon. Add the Brussels sprouts to the pan, cut side down, and cook undisturbed over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes, or until the Brussels sprouts are golden brown (they will only be golden on the one side).
Now work quickly to place the Honeycrisp apples in the pan on top of the Brussels sprouts (otherwise the Brussels sprouts might burn). Season them with a small pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg, and then stir the apples and Brussels sprouts together.
Pour the apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, and water mixture into the pan; it will sizzle and steam.
Add the cooked bacon to the pan. Mix continuously and continue to cook for another 2-4 minutes, just long enough to finish cooking the Brussels sprouts and slightly soften the apples.
