I love this dish and it was BIG in UK in the times of Queen Victoria as a Breakfast or supper dish, using poached smoked haddock.
It originally came form India where it was made with lentils and rice and called Kitcheri..the days of the Empire and all that...

2 cups cooked fish

1/4 pound/1/2 cup butter
2 1/2 cups cooked rice
2-3 hard boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 tsp curry powder (optional)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Melt the butter in a pan and add the curry powder and cayenne, cook for 2 mins before adding everything else.
Stir gently with a wooden spoon, until everything is heated through
Serve warm with hot buttered toast..this is really good with any  leftover cooked salmon.

make any of these recipes your own by adding hot sauces, horseradish, mustard, fresh vegetables, cooked vegetables ( the Fisherman's Loaf can be made Vegetarian by replacing the fish with cooked vegetables and cheese.)
