Description

My take on the British breakfast dish of curry fried rice with smoked fish.  An easy recipe to throw together for a weekend breakfast or Sunday brunch. #breakfast #Britishrecipes #rice #quickmeals #fish


Scale

Ingredients

  • 200 g (about 7 oz) of smoked fish like haddock, salmon or mackerel (whatever you like and whichever you can find)
  • 3 cups cooked Basmati rice (should be cold or room temp)
  • 1 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 34 tbsp butter
  • 23 eggs

Instructions

  • In a large frying pan, add butter and cook over medium heat.
  • When melted and hot, add chopped scallions and cook for 2-3 minutes until fragrant.
  • Chop up smoked fish into bite sized pieces and add to scallions.  Let cook for a minute or two until fish has cooked and has picked up the oil from the butter and scallions.
  • Increase heat to high and add cold Basmati rice.   Stir together and cook for a minute or two until everything is evenly coated in the oil of the butter.
  • Add 1/2 cup of chicken broth and 1 tbsp of curry powder.  Stir together and continue cooking on high until liquid has reduced and rice mixture is moist but not mushy.
  • Turn off heat, dish out onto plates and top with either a poached or fried egg and serve.  Sprinkle with a bit of chili flakes if you are feeling spicy.

Notes

Never fry rice that is hot as it has a tendency to get mushy and stick together.  Always use cold or room temperature rice that has been cooked ahead of time.
