The village Findon gave its name to haddock soaked in brine and smoked over peat and sawdust. It’s called “Finnan haddie”. It was commercialised in the 18th century. It is said that this technique was discovered by accident when salted fish was hanging in a smoky cabin and it was noticed that the fish was still edible after a while.
