Method

  1. Cook the rice in boiling water until just tender, then drain. Meanwhile, fry the onions in the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat for 10-12 mins until golden. Bring some water to the boil in a shallow pan. Add the haddock fillets, poach for 4 mins until the fish is just cooked, then drain and break into large flakes. Spoon half the onions onto a plate, then set aside.
  2. Stir the drained rice and lentils into the onion pan, then fold through the fish, lemon zest and parsley to heat through. Serve topped with the reserved onions and a handful of almonds, with the lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over.

I've added garlic to the onions, the fish I cooked in the oven with some soya sauce, olive oil and dill seeds, and I skipped the almonds and parsley. Some more soya while mixing fish, rice, onions and garlic. Tasted lovely!

Didn't like this at all. The ingredients just didn't go together and if it wasn't for the smoke haddock, the dish would be tasteless.

NB - I also tried the alternative creamy haddock pasta recipe and was not at all keen on it!

I really liked this recipe, but think it could do with more haddock. The flavours were lovely and light...perfect for summer evenings.

Wasn't sure what to make of this dish, seemed to lack something! Will not be making it again
