As well as eggs, this omelette contains smoked Finnan haddock and when made correctly is described as light and fluffy. How do you make it an Arnold Bennett omelette? 200g un-dyed smoked haddock 10 black peppercorns Although making a traditional omlette may be fairly straight forward, for this dish you want a creamy yet light consistency, follow the method below. Start with the milk, pour it into a shallow pan, add the haddock, bay leaves and peppercorns and bring this to a simmer. Cook for five minutes and then lift the fish out of the pan, leave to cool, flake and then discard the skin.

Strain the milk into a new pan and beat the eggs together in a separate bowl. Now turn on the frying pan on a medium heat, add 15g butter and the eggs and stir with a fork until they fold together. Slide the omlette out of the pan and add the fish to it. Next preheat the grill and meanwhile clean the omlette pan and use it to start making the sauce. Melt the remaining butter, then add flour and cook for two minutes. Gradually add the milk and season to your taste. Finally pour the sauce over your omlette, cheese and grill for 3-5 minutes. This dish should be enjoyed immeadiately. When is MasterChef: The Professionals on the BBC? MasterChef: The Professionals series 12 continues TONIGHT (November 6) at 8pm on BBC Two.
