This breakfast dish was traditionally made with smoked haddock and, in spite of what other recipes say, without spices. This version uses salmon as an alternative and to satisfy my husband's constant need for garlic and chilli, they have been included. You may, of course, leave them out.

  1. Bring the fish stock to a gentle simmer in a pan.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the chilli and garlic powders together.
  3. Mix with a little of the fish stock and add to the pan.
  4. Gently poach the salmon in the stock for about 5 minutes.
  5. Remove from pan, and pour stock into a jug.
  6. Using the same pan, heat the olive oil.
  7. Add the rice and stir for a minute or two.
  8. Remove from heat and add 800 ml of the fish stock. If you have less than that, make up with water.
  9. Cover and simmer until the rice has absorbed the liquid (about 15 minutes).
  10. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 160° C (325° F - gas 3).
  11. Flake and bone the fish. Skin if desired.
  12. When the rice is cooked, stir in the fish and the butter.
  13. Transfer to a baking dish and cover with tin foil. Prick a a few holes in the foil
  14. Bake for 15-20 minutes and remove from oven.
  15. Garnish with the chopped egg and parsley.


Try with any fish that flakes easily. Choose spices according to taste. If you like a smoked flavour and use non-smoked salmon. add 1 teaspoon Pimentón de La Vera dulce to the chilli and garlic powder. Use fresh, crushed garlic instead of the powder.
