Smoked Mackerel Kedgeree

Massive cooked breakfasts are off the menu at the moment , cooking them for 40 people at a time has made me rather non-plussed about sausages or bacon. But most especially on a bank holiday weekend I want to enjoy a nice cooked breakfast.

I really like kedgeree traditionally it’s made with smoked haddock but I always have smoked mackerel in the fridge and it combines well with leftover rice from curry. The rice was cooked with a stick of cinnamon and a few cardamon pods which added extra fragrance. ( If you are worried about re-heating rice the FSA has advice ,you just need to make sure it has been cooled and stored properly) .

This kedgeree has a real kick to it from extra green chilli but if you prefer something less spicy you can leave them out.
