Description: Jamie Oliver’s Kedgeree

Hands-on time 30min. Cooking time about 30 min. Serves 4

·         2 large eggs

·         700g (11/2lb) undyed smoked haddock fillets, small bones removed

·         2 fresh bay leaves

·         175g (60z) long-grain or basmati rice

·         100g (31/2oz) pure butter ghee or butter

·         2.5cm (1in) piece fresh root ginger, peeled and grated

·         1medium onion or 1 bunch of spring onion, finely chopped

·         1 garlic clove, finely chopped

·         2tsp curry powder

·         1tbsp mustard seeds

·         2 tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped

·         Juice of 2 lemons

·         Large handfuls fresh coriander, chopped

·         150ml pot natural yogurt

·         ½-1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped, to taste


1.    Boil eggs for 10min; leave under cold running water for a couple of min to cool and prevent the yolks discoloring.

2.    Place fish (skin-side down) and bay leaves in a shallow pan and add just enough water to cover. Turn on the heat, gently bring to the boil, then cover pan and simmer for about 5min or until fish is just cooked through. Lift fish out of pan and set aside to cool (discard poaching liquid).

3.    Meanwhile, cook rice in boiling salted water for about 10min, or until tender. Drain and refresh in cold water, drain again and leave covered in the fridge until needed.

4.    By now your fish will be cool enough for you to peel off and discard skin. Gently flake flesh into a bowl. Set aside. Melt butter ghee (or butter) in a large pan over a low heat and add ginger, onion and garlic. Cook gently for about 5min, then stir in curry powder and mustard seeds. Cook for a few more min, then add tomatoes and lemon juice.

5.    Shell and quarter the hard-boiled eggs. Take your fish and rice, and add to pan of softened and spiced ingredients. Gently heat through, then check the seasoning. Finally, add the eggs and most of the coriander. Stir together gently and pile into a warm serving dish.

6.    Mix remaining coriander into yogurt and add the chopped chilli, to taste. Pour the yogurt mixture into a small bowl and serve alongside the kedgeree.
