Method

  1. Heat the oil and cook the onion in a pan with a well-fitting lid until soft but not coloured. Add the spices and some salt and continue to cook until golden and fragrant, about 4 mins. Sprinkle over the rice and stir it well so that all the grains are coated. Stir in 400ml water, increase the heat, cover the pan, then bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn to a simmer and cook for 10 mins. Turn the heat off and leave to steam, covered, for 20 mins. The rice should be perfectly cooked if you don’t lift the lid before the end of the time.
  2. Place eggs in a pan and cover with cold water, put on a high heat and bring to the boil. Simmer for 3 mins for soft, or 5-6 mins for hard-boiled. Plunge into cold water until cool enough to peel, then quarter.
  3. Meanwhile, pour the milk over the haddock in a shallow pan and bring to a gentle simmer. Poach for 5-8 mins until just cooked through and flesh flakes easily. Remove from the milk, peel off and discard the skin and flake the fish.
  4. Gently stir fish, herbs and seasoning into the rice, top with the eggs and serve.

Might give the rice another minute or two next time...I used smoked cod as it was all I had to hand too.

*edit* unsure why my 4 star rating is a 1 tho

Living in The Netherlands smoked haddock is virtually impossible to get - what would be the best alternative ?

Too bland. Could not taste the fish much, but can't get rid of the smell of it! The rice on its own would make a nice accompaniment to something though.

I used smoked alaskan salmon which added a nice salty taste to it, this is my husbands favourite breakfast and it's really easy to make.

Used white fish as I didn't have any smoked but it tasted fine. Will try it with softer eggs next time.

A little bland for our taste. Didn't really taste the smoked haddock enough. Will try leftovers as a cold salad tomorrow.
