Finnan Haddock/Finnan Haddie
A form of smoked haddock, named after the Scottish fishing village of Finnan, near Aberdeen.
This style of smoked haddock was originally smoked over peat, but this is no longer used, and most haddock now comes from elsewhere. They are also now produced under this name in Portland and Boston on the eastern seaboard of the U.S.A. - but sometimes there go under the misleading name of Finland haddocks. See 'Haddock'
