Pin It Now!

This has been waiting to be shared for a couple of months now and I promised I'd post something soon, so here it is...

The first time I had Kedgeree was when my friend H made it for me. It's one of H's favourite meals and it quickly became mine. It's easy and for me definitely falls within the category of comfort food. It's traditionally served for breakfast, but to me it's a perfect dinner and I always make sure that there is enough to take to work for lunch the next day.

So when H, Lucy and I went on holiday together it was no surprise that we had kedgeree one night. Here is H's version, sorry there are no measurements, it kind of just works everytime, even if slightly different:



smoked fish (undyed haddock is my favourite)
2-3 eggs
basmati rice
fresh parsley
curry powder
lemon juice
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste

Poach your fish in some milk or water until it flakes easily.

Use the poaching liquid to cook the rice until done, whilst keeping the fish warm.

Whilst the rice is cooking, hard boil the eggs, peel and roughly chop.

Cook the peas.

In a large frying pan, melt the butter, add the rice, flaked fish, peas and season with curry powder, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.

Garnish with chopped parsley and serve hot with bread and butter.
