Post in association with Princes
I know! They go together like bread and butter right? John Lewis and canned mackerel.
But think about it like this – you go to John Lewis, you wander around for ages, gazing at all the things you’d have in your house if you won the lottery and didn’t have children/a partner who spoilt everything by leaving dirty cups on your carefully Instagram styled vintage sideboard, and then you come home, exhausted, and whip yourself up my mackerel salad nicoise and eat it on your fancy new John Lewis plates!
Job’s a good ‘un, as we say in our family, fondly mocking my mum’s partner Mitch.
As you almost 100% definitely read my mackerel recipe post earlier this week, I expect we’re already on the same page.
‘But Jo,’ you’re thinking to yourself, ‘I never realised canned mackerel was so versatile! If only you had another quick and easy mackerel recipe to share!’
I am, as ever, here to serve. (Not literally – you have to make it yourself.) Today I’ve got a second recipe for you – mackerel with rice and peppers.
Easy mackerel with rice recipe
This recipe come courtesy of Princes themselves, and couldn’t be simpler – literally just grab a bag of rice, chop a couple of peppers and some spring onions, and top it with some mackerel fillets in spicy tomato sauce.
I mean seriously, how long did that take?? About five minutes? But you’ve ticked all of the ‘not biscuits for lunch again’ boxes – you’ve got your carbs, fresh veg, AND one of your recommended twice weekly portions of oily fish, rich in those lovely omega 3 fatty acids.
If you’re one of those people who finds they’re neglecting their own diet because they’re always rushing around, juggling everyone else’s needs, then you NEED this canned mackerel recipe in your life.
Here’s a quick video to show you how easy it is, just in case you don’t believe me:
