Smoked Salmon Kedgeree
Sautéed Chard with Red Onion

         The Kedgeree calls for yogurt, but if you don't normally have it on hand, use milk or cream. It's noted like that on the shopping list.

Smoked Salmon Kedgeree

Total time: 25 minutes
   Kedgeree was, traditionally, made with smoked haddock and served as a part of a large breakfast.  We smoked the salmon, using a kettle grill, for about 20 minutes.  You could use purchased smoked salmon, if you prefer, but it should be hot-smoked, American-style rather than the wet-smoked, Scotch or Irish style.  Gravlax would not work.
