  • Add the turmeric and stir for one minute.
  • Add the rice, and stir to coat.

    This is becoming a family favourite! I use frozen fish, usually Pollock, smoked haddock and salmon and poach in vegetable stock to defrost whilst I prep everything else. Great for midweek comfort food. I'm a big fan of turmeric but I wouldn't normally think of using it with fish, very pleasantly surprised!

    I use frozen fish poached in vegetable stock so I have a fishy-veggie stock for the rice. I also put in some finely chopped spinach towards the end because I'm Mum!

    Excellent, very soft subtle flavours. I used home made stock from home grown Jade Perch from my aquaponics set up. The fish I used were locally caught Mullet fillets. Next time Ill try adding some Winter Tarragon.
