Lemon, Fresh – 1 Lemon/115g

Rice, White, Basmati, Dry Weight – 120g

Peas, Frozen – 100g


Make up the stock cube with 400ml of boiling water.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan (about 20cm across), add 1 finely chopped medium onion and cook gently over a medium heat for 5 minutes, until softened but not browned.

Stir in 3 split cardamom pods, ¼ tsp turmeric, 1 small cinnamon stick and 2 bay leaves and the curry paste – then cook for 1 minute.

Tip in 120g basmati rice and stir until it is all well coated in the spicy butter.

Pour in the stock and bring to the boil, stir once to release any rice from the bottom of the pan. Cover with a close-fitting lid, reduce the heat to low and leave to cook very gently for 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring some water to the boil in a large shallow pan. Add the smoked haddock fillet and simmer for 4 minutes, until the fish is just cooked. Lift it out onto a plate and leave until cool enough to handle.

Flake the fish, discarding any skin and bones.

Uncover the rice and remove the bay leaves, cinnamon stick and cardamom pods if you wish to. Add the frozen peas and stir through.

Gently fork in the fish, cover again and return to the heat for 2-3 minutes, or until the peas are warmed and the fish has heated through. If there is too much liquid at this stage, you can continue to cook, stirring occasionally until it’s achieved the required consistency.

Gently stir in almost all the 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley, and season with a little salt and black pepper to taste. Serve scattered with the remaining parsley and garnish with 1 lemon, cut into wedges.
