Healthy Smoked Mackerel Salad Rich In Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Congratulations! You've just found my smoked mackerel salad recipe, the most healthy and most tasty salad recipe upon this Earth, and if you don't believe me, ask your doctor!

Mackerel is one of these oily fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids that are really good for your heart and for preventing cardiovascular disease.

Fatty fish like mackerel, herring, sardines, lake trout and salmon are high in two varieties of omega-3 fatty acid, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Whether you're on health kick or not – it still tastes great.

You can of course make this smoked mackerel salad using pre-packed smoked mackerel from the supermarket but the best mackerel is definately that which you smoke yourself. Use this link to check out my recipe for hot smoked mackerel, it's really not that difficult to make and it sure makes for a infinitely superior result.

I've used a peppered smoked mackerel for this recipe (just take my basic hot smoked mackerel recipe and add some peppercorns after the smoking process) and dark leaved salad because this compliments the fish beautifully so if you want to vary the ingredients feel free. Peppery watercress would be a good alternative too.

Doesn't it look good enough to eat!

Serves:- 4 people

Preparation Time:- 15 minutes
Cooking Time:- n/a minutes

Total Time:- 15 minutes


  • 4 smoked mackerel filets
  • 1 large bag salad leaves
  • 1 small bag baby spinach
  • 8 boiled new potatoes (sliced)
  • 8 cherry tomatoes

Balsamic Vinegar Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon tip Dijon mustard


For the balsamic vinaigrette go 4:1 oil to balsamic vinegar, stir in the tip of a teaspoon of Dijon mustard add the teaspoon of honey and stir.

Next place the salad leaves in the salad bowl and add the sliced new potatoes. Drizzle over some of the vinaigrette and toss the salad. Now divide out into 4 individual bowls.

Flake the smoked mackerel filets and simply throw the fish on top – it's that simple.

Finally drizzle more of the balsamic vinaigrette over the salad and it will add a lovely sheen. Now tuck in and enjoy!
