Smoked Mackerel-In-A-Minute Tartines

  • Serves: 2
  • Preparation time: 15 minutes

Method

The smokiness of the fish and the creaminess of the crème fraîche go well together in this dish, and it's packed with healthy nutrients

  1.  Start with the pickled cucumber. Mix together all the ingredients except the cucumber, until the sugar has dissolved, then mix in the cucumber.
  2. Leave for 15 minutes, for the flavours to come together and the cucumber to pickle lightly.
  3. Now for the tartines. Mix the coriander, spring onion and chilli into the crème fraîche along with a little seasoning.
  4. Dollop half of this mixture on each slice of bread, spreading it thickly and evenly.
  5. Remove the skin and roughly flake the flesh of the fish into large chunks and place evenly on the crème fraîche.
  6. Drain the cucumber and scatter it over the fish. Do the same with the pomegranate seeds, then serve.
