Kedgeree Recipe

Kedgeree is great. It’s a bit like a fishy risotto, light, delicate and very tasty. There’s lots of scope to adapt it too: Just substitute the smoked mackerel with a different type of fish.

If you fancy something slightly different that’s very quick and simple to make this is the dish for you.
