    Mackerel noodle salad with citrus-soy dressing

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes

    Serves: 4


    125g (2 nests) dried fine egg noodles
    1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
    1½ tbsp reduced-salt soy sauce
    1 tangerine, juice
    1 tsp finely grated fresh root ginger
    1 garlic clove, finely grated
    220g pack Waitrose Bright & Crunchy Rainbow Salad
    230g pack Waitrose Boneless Hot Smoked Mackerel Fillets, skin removed and flesh flaked
    180g cucumber, finely sliced


    1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the noodles. Simmer for 3-4 minutes, then drain in a sieve and rinse under cold water to cool. Shake dry, then toss through the sesame oil and tip onto a few sheets of kitchen paper to dry more thoroughly.

    2. Mix the soy sauce, tangerine juice, ginger and garlic in a small bowl, then season.

    3. Tip the noodles into another large bowl and gently toss with the rainbow salad, mackerel, cucumber and ½ the dressing. Divide between 4 plates, then spoon over the remaining dressing before serving.

    Cook’s tip

    The wonderfully simple dressing can be used on all sorts of rice and noodle salads. Try experimenting with lime juice or rice vinegar instead of the tangerine juice.
