I know people who grew up thinking kedgeree was a weekly meal. I did not, we didn’t eat a lot of fish growing up, there was fish and chips for Saturday tea (fish from Marks and Spencer’s from Grandad and mum’s chips which are the best chips) and the occasional fish fingers but that was it.
Nowadays I eat more fish (thank you Iceland 3 for £10 fish) and this recipe has become one of of Ma’s staples. I have eaten kedgeree and done something kedgeree like before but it didn’t really stick in the regular rotation.
I did have a packet of smoked fish and I was thinking about it. One of the time I’ve eaten kedgeree was at a friend’s house who Felicity Cloake’s ‘Perfect’ recipe as a base, and I’d been thinking about the friend and the food so I looked it up.
Felicity Cloake’s recipes are the best, so I used it. I skipped the chilli because I don’t like heat and I added peas because for it to be something I needed to eat, it needed something green!
It’s really good, go forth and eat kedgeree…
