Salmon & Coriander Kedgeree

Kedgeree actually originated in India and began its life as khichari, a dish of rice and lentils, but it slowly transformed into the current dish during the time of the British Raj. Made of succulent flaked salmon with a spicy rice and coriander, Kedgeree is considered a breakfast dish but you can enjoy it as a light lunch or evening meal.
