Cullen Skink is a thick Scottish soup made of smoked Finnan haddie, potatoes and onions. Cullen Skink is a local specialty, from the town of Cullen in Moray, on the north-east coast of Scotland. The soup is often served as a starter at formal Scottish dinners.
The name is partly derived from Gaelic. The first element refers to the town of Cullen in Moray. However skink is a Scottish word for a shin, knuckle or hough of beef, which has lead to a second variant of this soup, one made from these.
Cullen Skink appears in many traditional Scottish cookery books and appears on a large number of menus across Scotland.
