I absolutely love Mackerel , and I think people don’t eat enough of it , as soon  I found this recipe I`ve made it and I assure you its delicious , I normally eat it for my lunch but it can be served as a starter or light supper , and this is what you need :


  • 2 pears, cored and sliced into thin wedges
  • 85g watercress
  • 150g Juniper and Black Pepper, Beetroot quartered
  • 2 x 160g  piri piri smoked mackerel, skinned and flaked

  • 150g of green lentils
  • 20g of butter

For the dressing:

  • 2 tbsp.  creamed horseradish
  • 1 orange, juice only
  • 3 tbsp.  olive oil
  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil and add the lentils. Cook for 20-25 minutes until tender. Drain well and refresh under cold running water.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a non-stick frying pan and fry the pear slices on each side until golden.
  3. Toss the cooked lentils with the watercress, cooked pears, beetroot, mackerel and orange segments. Pile on to a serving platter.
