Mackerel salad

Super easy mackerel salad

Don’t you just love it when you totally nail dinner, it hits the spot AND it was super easy to prepare! I often recommend eating more fish, but it can be challenging to find seafood which ticks the boxes of health AND sustainability. Thankfully, the humble mackerel is full of healthy omega 3 fats and as it’s a small fish is a more sustainable choice. Plus, smaller fish tend to be lower in mercury and other ocean contaminants.

Mackerel salad (serves 1)

  • 2-3 cups Cos lettuce leaves, torn
  • 1/2 small cucumber, sliced
  • 1/2 a grated carrot
  • Few slices of red onion
  • 1 small/medium boiled potato, cooled and sliced
  • 1 can mackerel, drained
  • 1 boiled egg (or 2 if you are ravenous like me!)

Place everything in a bowl, drizzle with lemon juice, olive oil, a splash of balsamic and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds.
