    Smoked Mackerel Salad

    Smoked mackerel and new potatoes in a tangy mustard dressing make a quick and inexpensive lunch or supper dish. Adding the dressing to the potatoes while they are still warm helps them to absorb all the flavours.

    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 450g salad potatoes, peeled
    • 4 smoked mackerel fillets

    • For the mustard dressing:
    • 6 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
    • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar


    1. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 15-20 minutes or until tender.
    2. Meanwhile make the dressing: whisk together the olive oil, mustard and vinegar. Drain the potatoes, cut into thick slices and place in a bowl. Add the dressing and stir gently. Leave to cool.
