Method

  1. Put the leek in a large microwave dish with 4 tbsp of the stock. Cover the dish with cling film, pierce the film with a knife, then microwave on High for 5 mins.
  2. Uncover the dish, then stir the rice and remaining stock into the leek. Re-cover with cling film, pierce and microwave on High for another 10 mins, stirring halfway through until the rice is very nearly cooked.
  3. Gently stir in the fish chunks, cover the dish with cling film again, then pierce and cook for a further 5 mins until the fish flakes easily and the rice is tender. Stir in the parsley, lemon zest and juice. Leave to stand for 2 mins before serving.

I used this recipe purely for inspiration. Firstly, I sautéed leeks, garlic, green peppers and peas in a frying pan and then add 300ml of stock (500ml was too much as I was not using dried basmati rice). I partially oven cooked frozen cod fillets then add them to my frying pan to cook with the rest of the ingredients until the stock reduced. Aforementioned, I used Tilda lemon basmati packet rice as I like my meal times to be quick!

Followed recipe to the exact letter (have tried twice as really wanted this to work) but extremely dry and the haddock overcooked. Am giving up on this recipe now.

I think it would have been nicer if I had done it on the hob instead of the microwave, as it was a bit soggy.

Such a quick and easy recipe for my 2 boys to help with after school but halved the amount of lemon as too overpowering.

Be careful with the lemon, it was all you could taste in mine, consequently it went in the bin and we had a take away!!
