Finnan Haddie is the proper name for smoked haddock that comes from Scotland. It is a basic of Scotish cuisine and very much part of their history, since it is a way to perserving food for the winter. Haddie is the Scotish name for haddock and Finnan refers to Findon, the region in Scotland, where this method of smoking originated.
