This is legendary, so easy and quick to make and I love it. Donated from our lovely nutritional therapist Stephanie from Nourish to Flourish it is a perfect snack when you are feeling low, tired, overwhelmed. instead of a biscuit this will make you feel good and not add to the waistline. The essential fatty acids in the mackerel help keep your hair shiny and your complexion clear (unlike a sugary biscuit or crisps!) and the protein will help balance sugar levels to combat cravings.
1 pack of smoked mackerel – remove skin and any bones
Add to a blender with 2 heaped tbsp plain probiotic yoghurt, 1 large tsp horseradish sauce (optional); juice of 1/2-1 lemon and black pepper and blend.
Taste and adjust lemon, yoghurt, horseradish and black pepper to your preference. You can also add some fresh parsley, chives or spring onion for added nutrition.
Serve on toasted rye bread with a dark green leafy salad (rocket, watercress, spinach) and fresh tomatoes on the side.
