What the hell is CULLEN SKINK I hear you ask?
It’s a smoked fish originally from the small town of Cullen in Banff on the North coast of Scotland.
It consists of smoked haddock, potato and leek with cream.
If that sounds familiar it’s because it is the precursor of the Boston Chowder. The Scottish exiles brought the recipe across the Atlantic with them and gifted to Massachusetts to bastardize and morph into a Boston staple.
