Make this quick and easy kedgeree dish with a pre-cooked pack of rice to save you even more time and effort without compromising on flavour.


  • Knob of butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 350g pack ready-cooked pilau rice
  • 1 tbsp creamy horseradish sauce
  • 30g frozen peas
  • 2-3 spring onions
  • 2 smoked kippers
  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • Handful fresh flatleaf parsley leaves
  • Lemon wedges


  1. Melt the butter and the olive oil in a large frying pan, add the pilau rice and cook for 2 minutes. Stir through the creamy horseradish sauce, frozen peas and spring onions, sliced.
  2. Cook for 2 minutes to warm through. Microwave the smoked kippers according to pack instructions, then skin and thickly flake, removing any large bones, and fold through the rice.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a small pan of water to the boil and cook the eggs for 7 minutes, then peel, cut into quarters and stir through the rice.
  4. Top with a small handful fresh flatleaf parsley leaves, roughly chopped, and garnish with some lemon wedges to squeeze over.
