Dill Pollen and Smoked Mackerel – a Simple Fusion of Flavour:
I made this lunch dish to showcase two ingredients. Some lovely smoked peppered mackerel from John at Delish Fish and Dill Pollen sent to me by David at Global Harvest. I wanted a quick and easy lunch dish, but thought it would be fun to make something a bit prettier than just grilling the mackerel (or even eating it straight from the packet).
The pickled beetroot is my own homemade from last year so it is just a little lighter than most of the pickles you can buy in the shops. This dish would work with any kind of pre-cooked beetroot, if you don’t like the pickled sort, you could just add a little lemon juice to the creme fraiche sauce.
Be warned, the beetroot starts to bleed very quickly, so you need to plate it up just before you are ready to serve.
