Cullen Skink with Seaweed

  • Umami-rich Recipes of Soup

Cullen Skink is a traditional Scottish soup, usually made with smoked haddock, onions, and potatoes. These vegetables are glutamate-rich, and the Inosinate-rich haddock creates a strong Umami synergy.⠀

We’ve made our version with local seaweed to add even more complex flavour to this heart-warming, milky soup. Serve with lots of crusty bread and seaweed butter.⠀
