Kedgeree-the perfect sunday supper

Wow, Jennywenny did it again, another ugly but tasty dinner! Kedgeree started off as an old colonial dish of the British Empire in India. Its traditionally a combination of rice, smoked haddock, and curry. This started off life as a breakfast dish, but its good for any meal and seems like a perfect sunday 'tea'. I followed Jamie Olivers lead and added chopped hard boiled eggs, lime juice and cilantro. I added some raisins for sweetness and a little veggie stock for flavor. I didn't have any smoked haddock, so I used some smoked salmon. Trader Joes came to the rescue with some ready cooked jasmine rice as it was getting a little late.

Kedgeree-adapted from Jamie Oliver-Naked Chef
Serves 2 hungry people or 3 with a salad!
1 medium onion
2 garlic cloves
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp curry powder
8 oz cooked rice
1 tsp better than bouillon in 1/3 cup boiling water
1 smoked salmon fillet
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
Lime/lemon juice
Handful of raisins (optional!)
Chopped cilantro to taste

Slowly sautee the onions for 5 mins in the butter, adding the garlic for the last minute. Add the curry powder and stir, then add the cooked rice and stock. Mix carefully, ensuring the rice grains get separated, add the salmon and warm through, then the rest of the ingredients. Mix together and serve with a salad or warm veggies.

mrhelI love kedgeree. I usually make Nigella's asian flavored recipe. But this looks fabulous.

Thank you for your thoughts about Upsie. I really appreciate it. :)

Thanks for the tip about pre-cooked rice! I never knew there was such a thing! I will investigate next time I'm at Trader Joe's!
