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.
- 200gms of Pearl Barley.
- Same bunch of Spring (Salad) Onions – roughly sliced.
- 20gms Butter.
- 3 Eggs.
- 500mls Vegetable Stock.
- 2 Teaspoons Curry Powder (as hot as you prefer).
- 90gms Petit Pois.
- 230gms Smoked Mackerel.
- Himalayan Pink Salt
- 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 shred 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.
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.
