Fish - Smoked Mackerel Dauphinoise


This is one of my favourite comfort fish dishes – one to curl up by the fire with and watch the snow fall outside – or in my case the pouring rain – and savour for its benevolence.

Step 1

Arrange the potatoes in a shallow baking dish. Mix in the mackerel. Add the bay leaves and a good grind or two of black pepper.

Step 2

Mix together the milk and cream and pour over the potatoes and mackerel.

Step 3

Bake in a preheated oven – 190c – for about 50 minutes to an hour. The cream mixture should be bubbling and the potatoes pierced easily by a knife.

Step 4

Serve with rocket and baby salad leaves with a swirl of balsamic over them and a little olive oil.
