Crowd pleaser, budget beater, time saver, easy…. what more could you want…except the ingredients and the recipe. This recipe for the Fish Ring uses flaked rice, a staple of the kitchen cupboard when my children were young. I have had trouble finding flaked rice here in Australia but recently located some at a local store that stocks food from the Pacific Islands! Got very excited and decided to make it for our dinner tonight.
Its been a while since I made the Fish Ring with Curry Sauce so I went to find my trusty aged notebook full of handwritten recipes ….. and it’s missing!!! Searched the house, under the sofa, behind the microwave…. put a post on Fabebook hoping a family member may know where it is….. nope. Im sure I have used it in the last month or so.
Went to the cupboard and started going through the boxes of recipe books….. in box two Icame across a clear file that has savoury recipes…including some pages from my other handwritten book that had fallen to bits…. and what do you know….. I found that sucker…..so just 13 minutes later dinner is in the oven cooking.

This is so easy!!! I prefer to use the tinned Sealord Smoked Fish from NZ for flavour and convenience.
Flaked Rice also makes a range of quick, easy desserts. My children enjoyed this easy rice pudding. Just mix it into hot milk with a dash of vanilla, stir for a short time and voilla you have a rice pudding. There was a more complex recipe with eggs too but really the children never noticed the difference!!!
