How do you know when this Salmon Kedgeree is cooked?

You’ll need to cook your salmon for around 10 minutes or until it’s cooked through and flaky.

The rice will need around 10 minutes to cook, but you’ll then need to leave the pan covered for another 10 minutes until the remaining liquid is absorbed and the veg and rice are cooked through.

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe.

How long can you keep Salmon Kedgeree in the fridge?

Once you’ve put it out, ideally you should eat it within an hour.  We’d recommend storing leftovers of this dish without the egg and adding a fresh boiled egg once it’s reheated.

If you allow any leftovers to cool, make sure to refrigerate in a container with a lid and chill.  You can keep leftovers of Salmon Kedgeree in the fridge for a day.

As we all know you can get food poisoning from eating reheated rice, but, it’s not actually the reheating that can cause issues, it is, in fact, the way that the rice has been stored beforehand where the problem begins.

Rice can contain spores that are resistant to heat and can survive the cooking process.

If cooked rice is left standing at room temperature these spores can grow into bacteria. At this point, the bacteria can be destroyed by reheating the rice thoroughly.

You should remember to do the following if you’re going to keep leftover rice:

  • Cool the rice as quickly as possible (ideally within one hour) then put it in the fridge immediately. You can split larger portions up into smaller batches to cool quicker.
  • Reheat and use any leftover rice (stored in the fridge) within one day.
  • When you reheat any rice, always check it is steaming hot all the way through.
  • Don’t reheat cooked rice more than once.

Can you cook this Salmon Kedgeree any other way?

We’ve baked our salmon to retain flavour and moisture, but you could poach it instead by placing it in a pan with 600ml of boiling water.  Bring it to the boil and then simmer for 8-10 minutes.  The cooking liquid can then be used to dissolve your stock cubes.

Can I freeze this Salmon Kedgeree?

Yes you can!  This recipe can be frozen after step 11, but please remember to do the following;

  • Freeze it as soon as it is cold enough.
  • Use a container or bag that is suitable for freezing.

Don’t forget to add a label with what it is, and on what date you put it in the freezer!

As when keeping rice in the fridge, make sure to do the following if you plan to freeze it:

  • Cool the rice as quickly as possible (ideally within one hour) then freeze it immediately. You can split larger portions up into smaller batches to cool quicker.
  • Freeze as soon as the rice is cold.
  • When you reheat any rice, always check it is steaming hot all the way through.
  • Don’t reheat cooked rice more than once.

How do I reheat this Salmon Kedgeree?

From chilled: Reheat until piping hot all the way through and then top with freshly boiled eggs after reheating.

From frozen: Defrost overnight in a refrigerator and reheat until piping hot all the way through.  Top with freshly boiled eggs after reheating.

For more information about reheating rice please take a look at the NHS website.
