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.
