Something Fishy ….

Bit of a busy one today, so need something tasty but quick.

I have a fair it of the brown rice left over from yesterday and wanted to use it up pretty quickly, so have plumped for Kedgeree – it’s an old Anglicised breakfast dish of curried rice and smoked haddock thought to have been bought home by British Colonials from India – Yummy..

I am using a curry paste again, I got several when Sainsburys had their own brand on offer, the are a good standby and even quicker than using the saintly Thermomix 😇

I do use the Thermomix to steam the smoked haddock 😆


Take on medium sized onion and finely dice, add to pan with a tiny bit of oil till translucent, I added 2 deseeded, chopped tomatoes, then added a heaped tablespoon of curry paste, when the paste is loosened and hot, add a little water, maybe half a cup, be careful it doesn’t spit when adding.


I then add the cooked rice and flaked, cooked smoked haddock. When fully combined, add chopped parsley and a good squirt of lemon juice and stir through.



Whilst all this is happening, you should soft boil an egg per person, and leave to partly cool to hand held temp, peel and cut the egg in half, and put on top of the kedgeree when serving, the yolk should be runny. I had run out of eggs – boooo….

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
