Kedgeree. The classic smoked fish and rice dish. This family favourite is full of protein and packed with essential vitamins and minerals. No wonder it’s such a perfect quick healthy meal!
So, happy Friday everyone! It’s a quick kedgeree fish recipe today as its been an extremely busy week for me.
I’ve been trying to finish off a load of recipes in preparation for my two weeks of being a volunteer at the Commonwealth Games here in Glasgow. 🙂
Monday started with a challenge as on beginning my gym routine, I found out that my iPod battery was flat. Not a great issue you might think, but I need music to get me going on the treadmill especially on a Monday morning!
Still, my new recipe Pecan Nut Biscuit Bars seemed to go down well in work, so that’ll be one for a future blog posting.
I can’t say the same for my sweet chilli fish stir-fry that I was trying midweek.
I mean it tasted great but it wouldn’t stay together long enough for it to be looking good in one of my photo’s. So back to the drawing board with that one!
I’ve been asked by friends at work to look into posting some more of my recipes, specifically the low cost healthy ones.
So I’ll probably look to include the pea and mint soup recipe that I made this week.
And also my oven baked whole wheat pesto fusilli. So more on those in the coming few weeks.
Anyway, onto today’s “Fish Friday” recipe!
Kedgeree was always a favourite and something my mum used to cook for us which I loved.
So here is her original easy kedgeree recipe. It’s healthy, low in calories and low fat too.
It’s a great recipe where you can cook each bit and then put them all into the same pan for serving.Kedgeree. The classic smoked fish and rice dish. This budget family favourite is full of protein and packed with essential vitamins and minerals. A perfect quick healthy meal!Click To Tweet

Right Folks, here’s wishing you all a great weekend.
Tomorrow night Lynne and I are at the first rehearsal for the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony as spectators.
At the Monday rehearsal I’m actually starting my first shift as a volunteer and then on Wednesday I’m working at the official opening ceremony.
I hope to get round to still being able to post some more of my recipes next week and perhaps a little bit about my volunteering experience!
This easy healthy kedgeree is great served on it’s own. Or with a green lettuce leaf salad.
I’d love to hear what you think of my recipe in the comments below and please do rate my recipe 5* if you like it! 🙂
- 400 g smoked fish I bought smoked River Cobbler fillets which were on offer but any such smoked filleted fish will do!
- 200 g wholegrain rice (or white but would not be as healthy and alters the nutritional content)
- 2 tbsp turmeric
- 80 g peas
- Freshly chopped parsley
- Place the fish in a pan and cover them with cold water. Bring the pan up to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer until the fish is tender enough (but not too tender) to be flaked.
- Drain the fish and then set aside.
- Place rice in a saucepan with the turmeric and cook according to the packet instructions.
- Cook the 80g peas according to packet instructions (easiest if you microwave them).
- Drain and flake the fish in the pan.
- Add the drained cooked rice and drained cooked peas.
- Mix well in the pan and garnish with the freshly chopped parsley.
