|Kipper fillet||400 Gram|
|Fresh lemon juice||3 Tablespoon|

1. Poach the kipper fillets for 1 minute in simmering water to cover.
2. Drain the kippers, scrape off the skin and cut the fish into bite-size pieces.
3. Place the fish in a glass or pottery dish and pour the lemon juice, oil and coriander (if using) over. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally.
4. Bring the rice and water to the boil in a small saucepan. Cover and simmer for 35-45 minutes, until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender.
