Smoked Haddock Camper Kedgeree

Smoked Haddock Camper Kedgeree is definitely a beautiful meal and one we recommend cooking outside on a portable stove. We hope to continue to prove that you can make great meals in your campervan with limited space and equipment but this one is recommended outdoor to avoid smells in your lovely camper. We used a Cadac Safari Chef 2 but any gas ring will suffice home or away. Our first recipe is smoked haddock campervan kedgeree, with wild rice and spinach.

This simple dish should take around 20 minutes to make. Smoky flavours of the haddock, with a chilli and cardamom kick make it a great fish dish. An optional cooling Tzatziki side if you want to take the heat out of the chilli.

This is best cooked outside to avoid any fish smells in your van

Equipment you will need:

A single gas burner  (a second is handy to boil the kettle)
A pan with lid.
A small measuring jug (suitable for holding boiling water)
Cutting mats (for fish and vegetables)
A knife
A wooden or plastic spoon
A grater (one like ours with built in container is perfect and cost £2)
Salt and pepper

  16. Bring to simmer then cover with a lid for ten minutes. It is very important to place the lid on at this point.
  17. Whilst you wait remove the skin from the haddock and maybe consider making the Tzatziki.
  18. Once the 10 minutes is up, stir the rice. If all of the water has been absorbed add a splash more to keep it moist.
  19. Place the haddock pieces on top of the rice and re-cover with the lid for 5 minutes.

  21. Once the 5 minutes is up, add two or three handfuls of spinach to the pan and re-cover. It should take 2 or 3 minutes for the spinach to wilt.

The Tzatziki is a nice cooling side dish (especially if you left the chilli seeds in) that takes 2 minutes to make. Grate a courgette or cucumber,  and add greek style yoghurt.
