Smoked Kippers, Poached Eggs with Bubble and Squeak

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yesterday I made this delicious meal for lunch - Smoked Kippers, Poached Eggs with Bubble and Squeak.



Smoked kippers are something which I remember my grandmother giving us to eat. They are such a different fish to the usual smoked salmon and really easy to get hold of in supermarkets.
Poached eggs are also really easy to make. For ages, I put off cooking them because I was daunted as to how hard they sounded. Cracking eggs into boiling water? But, honestly, it was so easy, really tasty and very healthy of course.
And, finally, Bubble and Squeak which is a traditional English dish usually made with leftover vegetables. The pan really did bubble and squeak when cooking!
I'm really glad I made this recipe - it opened my eyes to lots of new flavours and ideas and I hope you guys give it a go too, inshallah. It's a good option for brunch or dinner.

Ingredients needed: Rapeseed Oil, Spring Onions, White Cabbage, Potatoes, Fresh Chives, Salt, Pepper, Eggs and Smoked Kippers.

Bismillah, let's begin!

First, the bubble and squeak, place 5 peeled Potatoes into a pan of cold water. Bring to the boil, and simmer until tender.

Take 3 Spring Onions and 1/2 head of Cabbage.

Finely slice them both.

Then, heat up 1 tablespoon of Rapeseed Oil in a frying pan. Use olive oil if you don't have rapeseed.

Add in the spring onions and cabbage.

Cover with a lid to let them sweat down.

Meanwhile, once the potatoes are done, drain and place into a bowl.

Once the cabbage and onions are reduced, season to taste with Salt and Black Pepper.

Roughly mash the potatoes.

Season well with Salt and Black Pepper.

Add to the pan.

Gently stir.

Chop in 1 tablespoon of Fresh Chives.

Cook for 5 minutes per side or until crispy and golden brown.

Now, the poached eggs. Bring a pan of water to a rolling boil, and then simmer.

Crack in an Egg.

Leave to simmer for 3 minutes until the yolk is set. Place on a paper towel lined plate, and cook the second egg.

Finally, the kippers!

Cook the Smoked Kippers according to packet instructions.

To plate up, place some Bubble and Squeak onto a plate.

Pop on the poached eggs.

Season with salt and pepper.

Take the smoked kippers.

Share them out among everyone.

Enjoy out in the garden with a cold drink!

Hope you all had a beautiful weekend!
