Recipe by Chef Soomro Course: Gluten-free


Prep time

10 mins


  • Coriander: 1 small pack coriander, leaves roughly chopped
  • Turmeric: 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • Egg: 2 large eggs, boiled for 7 mins, peeled and cut into quarters
  • Ground Cumin: 2 tsp ground cumin
  • Ginger: thumb-sized piece ginger, peeled and grated
  • Garam Masala: 2 tsp garam masala
  • Basmati Rice: 300g cooked basmati rice
  • Frozen Peas: 200g frozen peas
  • Double Cream: 500ml double cream
  • Smoked Haddock: 400g undyed smoked haddock fillets (skin on)


  1. Pour the cream into a largesaute panwith a lid. Stir in the ginger and spices, then submerge the smoked haddock fillets, skin-side up. Put the lid on, bring the cream slowly to the boil, then remove from the heat and leave to cool. Flake the fish into a bowl in large pieces, discarding the skin.
  2. Put the spiced cream back on a medium heat. Once warm, add the cooked rice and peas and stir through to combine. Cook for 3 mins until everything is heated through.
  3. Gently mix in the haddock, being careful to keep it in large flakes. Cook for a further 2 mins and check the seasoning - the smoked haddock will be quite salty, but a good grind of black pepper could be welcome.
  4. Top the kedgeree with the boiled eggs and scatter over the coriander, then tip it into a large dish and take it to the table to serve.
