We spent the weekend in London with Hannah, James and Betty. There was a little smoked cod in the fridge, so a quick trip to the supermarket and all was ready for kedgeree, a dish I’ve always loved for some unknown reason.
First I boiled some eggs. Then I poached some smoked cod and halibut in the same water for about 4 minutes, and finally some prawns for a minute. I sautéed some spring onion in a little oil, added curry powder, 2 cups of rice, and salt. I poured in 4 cups of water, brought the pan to the boil and simmered covered until the liquid was almost absorbed. I flaked the fish and halved the eggs and added them to the rice to warm through. A little chopped parsley on top. (Coriander would have been good too)
I use long grain rice for this. Basmati is too delicate for such a robust dish!
