Ben O'Donoghue

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1L Chicken stock (plus more if needed)
  • 4 Scallops sliced in half
  • 4 Prawns peeled and de-veined sliced in half
  • 100g White fish flaky fish diced
    2 tablespoons fried crispy Shallots (shop bought Asian aisle)
  • 1 Spring onion
  • 1 Chilli Red finely sliced
  • Salt
  • Ground white pepper
  • Light soy sauce

Method:

  1. Combine the cooked rice and the chicken stock in a large pot. Bring the stock to the boil and then simmer gently, cooking the rice until it breaks down and thickens the stock to the consistency of a thin porridge this may take 30-45 minutes. Stir occasionally so that the rice doesn’t stick and burn on the bottom of the pot. Add more stock if it gets to thick. Season with salt and white ground pepper to taste
  2. Once the congee is cooked add the diced fish and simmer for a minute or two then add the prawns and scallops.
  3. Divide the soup between serving bowls and sprinkle the top with the fresh cut spring onion, the crispy shallot, sliced red chilli and sprinkle of soy sauce
