Cooking for Slackers: Mackerel a la bistro

Canned fish has a poor reputation. This will change your mind.

Ingredients

Can of mackerel in olive oil1

Two thick slices of Hovis bread

One tomato

Paprika2

Technique

Drain oil into a bowl

Soak one side of the slices of bread (both sides is a bonus)

Fry one side of bread (don’t add oil it spoils the taste)

Slice mackerel into strips

Space mackerel out on unfried side

Dice tomato and pack onto uncovered spaces on bread

Dust with paprika (to taste)

Grill until tomato is nearly mushy (edge of bread may burn)

Outcome

A wonderful tasty, healthy, cheap, quick meal

Finally

Washing up is a good idea

Addendum

This recipe is for Rick
