Hot Smoked Mackerel and Dill Spaghetti recipe

Smoked mackerel is full of Omega-3 oils, which are believed to help lower blood pressure, help prevent arthritis and even reduce the risk of cancer. This is a very quick and easy supper which would go well with a simple salad and crusty bread. Serves 4.


  • 160g hot smoked mackerel
  • 100g frozen peas
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 4 tbsp crème fraiche
  • 50ml white wine
  • small bunch fresh dill, roughly chopped
  • 400g spaghetti
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • wedge of lemon to serve


  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the onion and garlic. Cook for 2-3 mins until softened. Add the mackerel, crème fraiche, dill and peas and season well with salt and plenty of black pepper. Cook for a further 2-3 mins until the peas are tender.

  2. Cook the spaghetti as per packet instructions. Drain, leaving about 4 tbsp of water. Mix everything together and toss until the spaghetti is well coated.

  3. Serve in warmed bowls with a wedge of lemon to squeeze over.
