Who would have thought that mackerel and apple would work together? But it sure does in this dish. It’s gorgeous and light and contains two of my favourite foods: mackerel and watercress.
I’ve never actually made this dish; Dan always makes it for us. I like it that way because I can just sit and wait for one of my favourite meals be handed to me 🙂
This dish is from Good Housekeeping’s easy to make low GI cookbook that is now permanently in our kitchen. It serves 4 as a starter but to be honest between the two of us, we can easily finish this off as a main course.
- 350g new potatoes, washed, cooked, boiled for about 15-20 mins
- 2 tbsp horseradish sauce
- 2 tbsp crème fraîche
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 2 crispy apples
- 2 smoked mackerel fillets, skinned and flaked
What to do
- Roughly chop the cooked potatoes and apple.
- In a large bowl, mix potatoes, apple, smoked mackerel, and watercress.
- Mix the horseradish sauce, crème fraîche, lemon juice and oil. Season with freshly ground pepper.
- Toss the dressing with the rest of the ingredients and serve!

What I’d like to try next time
- I’d like to use less potatoes and more mackerel for less carbs and more protein
- Try wholegrain Dijon mustard for the dressing
- Try green apples
