Category: food

The melt-in-your-mouth flavour of smoked mackerel really shines in this dish. On the table within half an hour, this salad is sure to be a hit with the whole family. Pack for a picnic and pair with some crispy BBQ prawns for a real seafood extravaganza. 


1. Cook the potatoes in a large saucepan of salted, boiling water until tender to the point of a knife, 18-22 minutes approximately.

2. Once ready, drain well and rinse under cold water for 1 minute. Set aside.

3. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the cucumber and then prepare into long ribbons using the peeler.

4. Pat the potatoes dry and cut in half. Whisk together the yoghurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and plenty of seasoning in a mixing bowl. Add the potato halves and stir well to coat.

5. Arrange lettuce leaves on serving plates and top with the potato salad, cucumber ribbons, sliced red onion, and flaked mackerel.

6. Serve immediately for best results.
