Spiced bulgar pilaf with fish - Fishy Friday!
Spiced Bulgar pilaf with fish -adapted from the recipe on the BBC GOOD FOOD website
1 onions, finely sliced
1 carrots, grated
2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp each of ground coriander, garam marsala, paprika, hot chilli powder, turmeric
25g Bulgar wheat
3 dried apricots, chopped
300ml weak chicken stock (we made using 1 stock cube)
50g baby spinach
1 frozen coley fish fillet, defrosted
4 thin lemon slices
1. Tip in the onions in a saucepan and cook until soft and golden. Add the carrots and spices, and cook for 2 mins more. Stir through the Bulgar and apricots, pour over the stock and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 7 mins.
2. Add the spinach and stir through until just wilted. Arrange the fish fillets on top, pop a slice of lemon on each and season. Replace the lid and cook for 8 mins, keeping over a low-ish heat.
3. Turn heat to low and cook for 7-8 mins more until the fish is cooked through and the bulghar is tender. Season with pepper and serve.
Added peppers and green beans too.
