Lentil and Smoked Mackerel Salad

Posted By Stephen


When I arrived home from work this evening, Kerri was busy flaking up the smoked mackerel to put into the salad, which was all that remained to be done before it was ready to eat.

We have tried something like this before, but we didn’t put in the wild rice this time, which made it easier to eat – the wild rice was very chewy.  It just contained some cooked green lentils, some flaked smoked mackerel and then various fresh vegetables chopped up small.  It all went together quite well, especially with the dressing which contained honey, lemon, English mustard and olive oil.  There was just enough of the dressing for the flavours to come through without it being overpowering.

We ate it with some left over French bread.  Tasty and healthy.

    How exactly do you smoke a lentil? This looks delicious; can’t wait to make it for lunch!

    Oops, never mind! I see it requires “cooked” lentils, not “smoked.” I must have misread. Cooked I can do. Cheers!

    Oh my… this is SO definitely making it onto the dinner rotation at Chez Cooksister! Smoked mackerel and lentils are possibly two of my favourite things in all the world 🙂
