Health is wealth n’all that and mackerel (if you can get hold of it) is amazing for you… Glowy skin, lush hair etc etc... you know the jam.
A lot of people claim it’s too fishy, which seems a strange insult for a fish, but hey ho. If you don’t like it swap for any other oily fish - salmon for example.
I bulked out this salad with some roasted veg - you can just use whatever you have.
1 or 2 smoked mackerel fillets
1 sweet potato
1 red onion
1 red pepper
Seasoning such as parprika / oregano
1 Small bowl of frozen peas
Small bag of mixed leaves
Juice of 1 lemon
Big slug of olive oil
1 Tbl of horseradish (or do half n half with plain yoghurt if you find it too fiery)
1 Tsp of mango chutney / or honey
1 Tbl of capers
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4/ 350°F
Chop up your chosen roasted veg and lay on baking tray with olive oil, seasoning and salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes
Wrap mackerel fillets up in foil and bake in oven for 10 mins
Put the frozen peas in a bowl with water, cover with clingfilm and put in the microwave for 3 minutes
Chop the avocado and mix with the leaves
Make your dressing by shaking together all of the ingredients. Taste and adjust to required, you might want to add a little water to thin it out
Assemble salad, with the flaked mackerel, roasted veg and peas
Toss and drizzle over dressing
