Recipe: Mackerel Salad

OK, I feel cheeky calling this a recipe because it really isn't any more than opening a tin and chucking stuff together. But sometimes that's just what you need, right?

We get told that we should have 2 portions of fish a week, and at least one of those should be an oily fish. Mackerel fits that bill. You can see which other fish count towards your fish intake here:

This is a good, healthy, quick to prepare lunch that's ideal for home or work as a packed lunch, and can bew tailored to your tastes without affecting the points value. Just so long as it's tinned mackerel and points free salad and fruit!

So here's what's in my lunch:


  • 1 tin of Princes Mackerel in Tomato Sauce
  • 1 bowl full of zero points salad (in this case assorted lettuce)

Use a fork to break apart the fish, flake over the salad leaves.

Serve with: 

  • Fresh fruit. 
I have 2 small (kids lunch sized) apples, a banana, and a bunch of grapes


Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too. 

 You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
