This smoked mackerel kedgeree is a tasty dish with a difference. Packed with mackerel and topped with boiled eggs to help you increase your vitamin D intake, it's perfect as a family dinner that's big on flavour.


Serves 4

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Knob of butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 2 tsp good quality curry powder
  • 150g basmati rice, rinsed well under cold water
  • 300-400ml vegetable stock
  • 1 handful frozen peas
  • 250g smoked mackerel fillets, skin removed and flaked
  • 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 handful of fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 medium free-range eggs (boiled)
  • 2 tbsp natural yogurt (optional)
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  1. Heat the oil and butter in a deep-sided frying pan then add the onion and garlic. Cook over a low-medium heat for 5-10 minutes until soft. Add the turmeric and curry powder and stir, cooking for 1 minute until the spices become fragrant.
  2. Stir in the rice then pour over the stock. Bring to the boil, then simmer gently for 10 minutes until just tender (it should still have a 'bite' to it). You may need to add a little more stock as you go. Check for seasoning.
  3. Add the flaked mackerel to the pan and gently stir through then cover and continue to cook over a low heat for 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, soft-boil the eggs by boiling in a pan of water for 6 minutes then remove with a slotted spoon, peel and slice into quarters.
  5. Add the frozen peas to the kedgeree mix and squeeze in half a lemon.
  6. Take the frying pan off the heat and gently stir the yogurt (if using) and coriander leaves.
  7. Serve with the quartered, boiled eggs on top.

Vitamin D per serving: 5.5mcg (55% RDA)
