Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 eggs , lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp red curry paste
  • pinch caster sugar
  • 800g cooked basmati rice (about 250g-300g uncooked)
  • small bunch spring onions , sliced
  • 140g frozen peas
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce , plus extra to serve
  • 4 smoked mackerel fillets, flaked
  • ½ cucumber , cut into half moons

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok. Tip in the eggs and swirl to coat the base of the pan. Cook for 1 min, then flip and cook the other side until set. Remove and roughly chop into ribbons.

  • STEP 2

    Add the curry paste and sugar and fry for 1 min. Tip in the rice and stir to coat in the paste, then add the spring onions and peas. Stir-fry for 2-3 mins until everything is really hot. Add the soy sauce, then gently toss through the omelette ribbons and mackerel.

  • STEP 3

    Divide between 4 bowls and garnish with the cucumber. Serve with extra soy sauce, if you like.
