This is an extremely healthy, great value, delicious Scandinavian style salad. I love the crunch of the watercress and red onion alongside the flaky mackerel, buttery potatoes and juicy capers. I think it’s nice to have the potatoes and mackerel served warm. A big dollop of mayonnaise is essential. Don’t worry, I’ll be making up for this healthiness by blogging an awesome pecan pie recipe soon…
Ingredients (serves 2)
2 smoked mackerel fillets
70g watercress (or any salad leaf)
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 potato, chopped
Boil the potato until soft and tender then add some butter, salt and pepper. Put the watercress on plates and top with the potatoes, flaked mackerel (heated if you wish – takes one minute in the microwave), red onion and capers. Drizzle with a little olive oil. Serve with mayonnaise.
