Tasty Tuesday With A Hint Of Spice

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another Tasty Tuesday here on Planet Magnet and I hope you have brought your tastebuds with you because have we got a cracking dish for you here today….

Pearl Barley Kedgeree.





The list goes on but trust me when I say this dish is most worthy of your consideration for a future feature and your table at least one meal time in the coming weeks….

So here is how to make my version of Nigel Slater’s wonderful dish.


  1. 200gms of Pearl Barley.
  2. Same bunch of Spring (Salad) Onions – roughly sliced.
  3. 20gms Butter.
  4. 3 Eggs.
  5. 500mls Vegetable Stock.
  6. 2 Teaspoons Curry Powder (as hot as you prefer).
  7. 90gms Petit Pois.
  8. 230gms Smoked Mackerel.
  9. Himalayan Pink Salt
  10. Cracked Black Pepper.


Measure out the 200gms of Pearl Barley.


Put the Pearl Barley into a pan.


Mix your Vegetable Stock.


Then add…. Start to boil and then leave to simmer.


Whilst this simmers, roughly chop the Spring Onions.


Then add the 20gms of Salted Butter to a pan and melt on a low heat.


Check on the Pearl Barley adding more water should it be required. Season With some Cracked Black Pepper and stir in well.


Now the butter has melted, add the Curry Powder.


Then the Spring Onions.


And the Petit Pois.


Then mix in well.


Once the Pearl Barley is cooked with all of the liquid absorbed, remove rom the heat and then add the curried Peas and Onions and stir in well. You will note that this small amount of Curry Powder will spread easily through the Barley and colour it nicely. Place a lid on the pan to allow to continue cooking.


Remove the skins from the Mackerel and roughly shredΒ into pieces before adding to the Barley. Mix in well and replace the lid to continue cooking.


Boil the three eggs, shell and cut into quarters.


Dish up the Kedgeree into a small bowl and add the eggs to one side.


Eh, Voila!

Simple to make, healthy and wholesome, low in calories with a good amount of protein plus all of those lovely fish oils…. Yum!!

Well there you go guys, another Tasty Tuesday Recipe has been brought to you from Nigel Slater but as always with a Magnet twist on it. Hope you like it and I hope you try it very soon.

‘Till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge.

    Nice to come back to a lovely meal. I didn’t even know what petite pois was until I looked it up. Thank you for expanding my mind. (It has lots of room for expansion πŸ˜€ )
    Looking forward to catching up with everyone’s world and the progress they pursue. As the weather here warms and the sunshine remains longer each day, I think of your upcoming charity event. The time will pass quickly. Hope the training has gone well.

      Hey Jonathan, welcome back. It’s good to hear from you.
      I’m glad you like the recipe and have learnt something about another kind of pea….!
      The walk is certainly coming along. We are moving closer each day although there is a ton of work to do. I need to continue with my training and things will be good of that I am sure.
      Hope all is well with you and your father is on the mend.
      Be well my friend.

    I absolutely LOVE kedgeree but have never (and would never have thought for that matter) used pearl barley in it – which I also love. So I will certainly be making this. As a little ditty from the dotty – last winter when my eldest daughter visited with her intended the one request she had was for me to make him kedgeree … happily he loved it πŸ™‚
