The first comment I got when I said we were having a kedgeree was ‘Is it Christmas?’, a well worn joke in this house as it’s boxing day fodder. Obviously we don’t need that excuse for a meal like this but let me just take a moment to point something out – Christmas is only four months away – FOUR!!!
Nigella’s recipe serves 6 but as there is only two of us, one decent sized piece of salmon was fine.
Heat the oven to 190ºc (fan).
Boil some eggs until hard but with that lovely claggy-looking yolk.
Pop some cold water in a roasting dish and add salmon and lime leaves. Cover with foil and cook for 15 minutes. Pop the fish in foil and keep the water.
Melt some butter in a pan with a little oil. Cook chopped onion until softened then add the spices and stir for a couple more minutes. Add basmati rice and stir well, pour in the reserved salmon liquid, bring to the boil, turn down low, cover and cook for 15 minutes, adding a little more water if required.
Flake the salmon and add to the dish with lime juice and fish sauce.
The recipe can be found here on Nigella’s website.

We ended up having dinner quite late last night, with full stomachs, that also meant we were in bed quite late so tonight we took the easy way out and went with a Chinese takeaway. I used ‘Just Eat’ for the first time ever, purely from an ’emergency’ perspective as we didn’t have cash in the house.
The e-mail I received when signing up thanked me for being ‘part of the no-cook revolution’ ERM NO! Rather presumptuous of you Just Eat.
Starting with my favourite delicious crispy squid we had pancake rolls, pork curry, chilli chicken and chips. Yum.

On Friday night we just used up some lamb burgers we had in the freezer, shop bought they were nothing to write home about.
