Smoked Haddock Kedgeree Coulibiac

With curry spices, Basmati & Wild rice, spinach, egg and puff pastry.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 200g Tilda Basmati & Wild Rice, uncooked
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 200g chestnut mushrooms, minced
  • 200g spinach, blanched & chopped
  • 1 tbsp coriander, chopped
  • 6 eggs, hard boiled and sliced
  • 2 sides smoked haddock, pin-boned & skinned
  • 4 pancakes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 10g curry spices, cumin, coriander, turmeric, garam masala

Method

  1. Boil the Tilda Basmati & Wild Rice in 1 litre of water with the curry spices until cooked, then drain and allow to cool.
  2. Fry the onions, garlic and mushrooms until dry, then mix into the rice. Finally, mix in the spinach, coriander and one of the eggs, and season.
  3. Lay the two sides of smoked haddock on a flat surface. Lay slices of the remaining hard-boiled eggs over fish, and then a layer of the rice mixture. Sandwich the two halves together, brush the pancakes with beaten egg then roll tightly around the fish. Roll in cling film to form a sausage shape and allow to set in the fridge overnight.
  4. Remove the cling film and seal the haddock in puff pastry, then egg wash 3 times with egg yolk only (this will allow for a golden glaze).
  5. Cook at 175˚C for approximately 30 minutes.
  6. Serve with watercress salad and cucumber & mint raita.
