Crepes parmentier with smoked haddock

I made this a while ago, and it didn't quite live up to expectations.  The ingredient list makes it sound great, but it didn't quite work, probably down to my cooking.  It was probably because i cooked the smoked haddock as well as marinading it because it wasn't that fresh.

- Peel and dice 500g potatoes and steam them for 20-30 mins until tender.
- While the potatoes are cooking, marinade 500g smoked haddock in 3 tablespoons olive oil, the juice of 3 lemons and some salt, for about 5-10 mins.
- Put the potatoes into a bowl and add 4 teaspoons plain flour, mixing well, using an electric mixer.
- Now add 3 eggs, 4 egg whites, 50ml creme fraiche, and 50ml milk, and mix to a smooth batter, adding salt and pepper to taste.
- Heat a film of vegetable oil in small pan, and when its very hot, add a ladleful of batter.
- You should get around 8-9 pancakes, enough for 4 people.
- Serve the pancakes with the marinaded smoked haddock, some creme fraiche and chopped chives and coriander.

I am going to try this again at point with fresh smoked haddock and will report back.
