Special Father’s Day Recipes
Part of the celebrations will be a big lunch tomorrow so, of course, I want both dads to be utterly spoiled.
Now my dad’s favourite thing is rice, so I’m going to make him this gorgeous kedgeree supper, which is easy but delicious.
And for dessert, I’m going to make Mark’s most favourite pudding in the world – a banoffee pie, but with a twist.
The other day he was saying that he really fancied the idea of a coffee flavoured banoffee so, as a surprise, I have created a canoffee pie (see below) as a treat for him.
? 300g of cooked smoked haddock
? 300g of basmati rice
? 2 tbsp of olive oil
? 1 onion very finely chopped
? 1 tsp of medium curry powder
? 1 tsp of ground coriander
? 10 hardboiled quails eggs (or four chicken eggs)
? Chopped coriander
1 Heat the oil in a non-stick pan with a lid and fry the onions until soft then add the spices and cook until their aroma is released.
2 Then stir in the rice and season. Cover with boiling water until it comes two inches above the rice.
3 Bring to the boil and stir once – turn the heat as low as possible and put on a tight-fitting lid. Leave to simmer for 15 minutes.
4 Put the rice into a big bowl and gently sir in the haddock and top with the eggs and coriander.
There are no bananas in this canoffee pie but of course, feel free to add them if you want.
For the base:
250g of chocolate Hobnobs
For the filling:
1 x 397g can of Carnation Caramel
For the topping:
250 ml of double cream
1 tsp of espresso instant coffee
2 tbsp of icing sugar
1 Blitz the biscuits in a blender until they are crumbs, then melt the butter and add it to them. Mix it well.
2 Now line the base and sides of a greased 20cm loose-bottomed cake tin with the biscuit mixture and push down well with the back of a spoon. Pop it into the fridge for half an hour.
3 Now pour the caramel on to the biscuit base and put back in the fridge. When you are ready to serve, whisk the double cream until thickened with the coffee and icing sugar. Pile it on top of the canoffee pie and decorate with some sweet coffee beans.
