Summer Mackerel and Beetroot Salad

This summer fish dish is fresh and simple to make. I knocked this up in 10-15 mins for my lunch last week. A mountain of vegetables and salad and I struggled to finish it!

Summer Mackerel and Beetroot Salad

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 mackerel fillet
  • 1 whole beetroot (not packaged, buy loose from supermarket or veg shop)
  • 2 carrots
  • ¼ of cucumber
  • ¼ punnet of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • Handful of spinach leaves

 

Method:

  1. Grill the mackerel on a low heat for 5-10 mins whilst you prepare the vegetables. Check the mackerel every now and then to make sure it’s not burning.
  2. Wash all the vegetables really well as we don’t know who’s touched them or where they’ve been!
  3. Peel the beetroot and chop into small cubes.
  4. Slice avocado in half and remove stone, then slice the avocado flesh. (keep the stone for later).
  5. Chop the rest of the vegetables up.
  6. Serve up and enjoy.

 

Top tip:

– If you make a big batch you can use a BPA free plastic container to save for another meal.
