Kedgeree is a wonderful recipe that’s full of flavour. This adaptation uses smoked salmon instead of white fish. What makes it a summer kedgeree? We’ve packed this recipe full of fresh podded peas and snap peas, too.
If you don’t have fresh peas, take a look at this more traditional version which uses frozen.

- Knob of butter
- 1 large onion, chopped

- Heat 1 tbsp oil and the knob of butter in a pan over a medium heat and soften the onion and garlic for 5 minutes. Add the spices and cook for a further 2 minutes, then add the rice, stirring to coat. Add the stock, bring to a boil, cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes.

- Heat the remaining oil in a separate frying pan. Cook the shallots over a medium-high heat, stirring, until golden and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Fry the eggs in the pan until cooked to your liking. Stir the coriander through the rice, spoon among plates and garnish with a fried egg and the shallots.
