Inspired by Saturday Kitchen the the other week, I decided I wanted to try smoking fish myself. I got a couple of mackerel from Borough Market.
Yes… that’s chicken wire! It allowed to me fashion a stand that was the right height for the fish to go on. The fish goes on foil, and gets topped with slices of lemon, and on this chicken wire stand!
Meanwhile we made a potato salad to go with it. Due to cheap avocados as Borough it’s got avocado in it, plus the mor normal red onion, spring onion, light mayo, mustard and white wine vinegar.
I also did some asparagus, also from Borough. This just got done in the microwave: in a covered bowl with a splash of water and cook for 2m30s.
Finally I did poached eggs. No action picks of this as it’s a right faff doing it, and there’s no time for pics! Basically it’s a big pan of boiling water with salt and white wine vinegar in, make a whirlpool and gently slide the eggs in. I put the eggs in ramekins to make the slide in as gentle as possible.
