Suggested cooking methods


  • 2 x smoked mackerel fillets
  • 3 tbsp reduced-fat crème fraîche
  • Squeeze of lemon juice, to taste
  • Flat-leaf parsley, to garnish
  • 125g box assorted breadsticks


  1. Remove the skin and flake the smoked mackerel flesh into a bowl. Break it down with a fork, the more you mix, the smoother the dip will be. If you prefer a courser type, go easy with the fork.
  2. Add in creme fraiche and lemon juice and mix it all up. If your mackerel wasn’t peppered in the first place, you might like to add some - but it should be salty enough.
  3. Serve the dip, garnished with the parsley, with the breadsticks on the side.
