Spiralised Mackerel Salad

During my fat fighting and healthy eating regime I have been strictly adhering to 1200 calories a day and this particular salad is a delicious, refreshing 350 calorie meal, ideal for lunch.

I used my spiraliser and vegetable peeler to make for an interesting and crunchy texture of radish, yellow pepper, carrot and cucumber with some blanched kale and topped with pomegranate seeds for some added crunch. Using lemon juice as a natural dressing too just really peps this up.

Mackerel is a fantastic oily fish full of fabulous nutrients and can be bought so inexpensively too - what's more it's delicious.

Spiralised Mackerel Salad

Here’s how:

50g kale
1/2 pomegranate
1 carrot
4cm length of cucumber
4 radishes
1/2 yellow pepper
1/2 lemon
1 peppered smoked mackerel fillet
Firstly blanch the kale in some boiled water and drain. Use some kitchen towel to take out any excess moisture and add to a plate or bowl.

Now peel the carrot and spiralise, or use a vegetable peeler to create ribbons (grating also works). Add to the plate. Do the same with the cucumber and radishes and use the peeler to make thin slithers of yellow pepper.

Remove the seeds of the pomegranate and drain out the juice (add to some water for a lovely, refreshing beverage) and scatter over the plate.

Add the mackerel fillet and squeeze the lemon over. Enjoy!
