Simple spicy smoked mackerel kedgeree recipe

Posted by on Thursday 7 October 2010 in cooking, recipes | 4 comments

We had some reduced-to-clear smoked mackerel in the freezer so I decided to make some kedgeree for a quick but tasty dinner on Monday evening.

It’s a bit buttery, pretty spicy and quite, quite fishy – basically yum on a plate. And it’s easy to make too.

Easy spicy kedgeree recipe

  • Makes 3 large portions – and extra egg and a little more rice would easily make four medium size ones.
  • Takes about 15 minutes
  • Cost – about 80p per portion (although with our reduced-to-clear fish and homegrown eggs, ours was about 30p the other day – win!)


  • Two large knobs of butter (25g)
  • An onion
  • Garlic – a clove or equivalent puree
  • 200g (basmati) rice
  • 500ml of veg stock
  • 200g (ish) smoked mackerel
  • 2 (or 3) eggs – hard-boiled
  • Fresh coriander leaves to taste


  • 1 decent fresh red chilli or 1/2 tsp of dried chilli flakes
  • 2tsp of curry powder
  • 1tsp of cumin seeds
  • 1tsp of whole coriander seeds
  • 1tsp of yellow or brown mustard seeds
