Mackerel with tomato sauce and salad

For my next recipe, I am going to do a savoury option that take roughly 20-30 minutes to prepare and cook. Although not likely to appear in Great British Bake Off, this recipe will get your taste buds turning (in a good way).

This weeks recipe: Mackerel in a tomato sauce with salad.

It is a perfect meal for the summer time. quick and easy to make and cook, you can substitute mackerel with another fish or even some meat.

Preparation Time: 10- 15minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 4-6
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes
  • 1 table spoon of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves picked
  • 3 x 125g tins of mackerel in tomato sauce
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • freshly prepared salad
Preparation method:
  1. Wash and dice the tomatoes. Peel and crush the garlic and cut the thyme in smallish sizes
  2. place a frying an on a medium heat, add the oil.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes, garlic and thyme and fry for 5-10 minutes. They should be soft. Stir occasionally.
  4. Stir in the mackerel with the sauce and warm through.
  5. Season how you wish and place to side.
  6. Keep the frying pan and add a little bit more oil in. Get a couple of slices of bread.
  7. Making sure the oil is hot, place the bread in the pan and fry each side for about 3-5 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Serve the mackerel with the fried bread and freshly made salad. Enjoy!
if you don't want to have it with bread for whatever reason then you can serve it with rice, pasta or on its own.

The finished product!

I hope you love the taste and the simplicity of this as much as I do. It is so quick and easy so if you do make it then send me a picture or comment!
