How about some egg fried rice to have with a stir fry? Or a risotto or a paella? If you liked smoked haddock you could make kedgeree with it too :) Or have it with a curry/chilli?

Or you could cook the rice, add some cheese (mozzarella or parmesan would be good), garlic powder or flakes (you could use chilli instead if you like chilli powder), salt and pepper and 1 or 2 eggs depending on how much rice you cook. Mix it all together then let it stand for about 15 minutes before rolling the mixture into balls. Roll the rice balls in a HexB of wholemeal breadcrumbs per person and bake at 210 for about 20 minutes.
