  • 400g pack Asda Frozen Haddock Fillets
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 4-5 level tsp Asda Mild Curry Powder (use 4 tsp for a milder flavour)
  • 300g long-grain rice, rinsed and drained
  • 160g pack baby spinach
  • 325g frozen peas
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • 25g flaked almonds
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Put the fillets in a small roasting tin with 3 tbsp water. Cover tightly with foil and cook for 20-25 minutes (you can use a ceramic dish, but the fish will take longer to cook).

  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan and fry the onion until it's soft and starting to turn brown. Add the garlic and continue cooking for another minute.

  • Add the curry powder and 2 tbsp cold water and stir over a low heat for another minute. Stir in the rice and add 600ml cold water. Season, bring slowly to the boil, then cover and simmer for 8 minutes.

  • Add the spinach and peas and stir once. Heat until simmering again, then cover and simmer for another 3-4 minutes or until the rice is cooked.

  • Break the fish into large flakes and add to the rice with the lemon juice.

  • Toss the almonds in a dry frying pan until golden, then sprinkle on top of the pilaf before serving.
