  • 750g baby new potatoes, halved (large ones quartered)
  • 210g pack Scottish hot smoked mackerel fillets
  • 3 Essential Oranges, skin and pith removed, cut into segments or slices
  • 80g watercress

  • 1 echalion shallot, sliced into very thin rings
  • 3 tbsp honey & mustard dressing, to taste


  1. Boil the potatoes in plenty of salted water for 15 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain and allow to steam for 2-3 minutes in the colander.

  2. Meanwhile, remove the skin from the fish and break the flesh into large chunks. Add to a bowl, then toss with the oranges, watercress, chives and shallot.

  3. Once the potatoes have steamed, add them, together with the dressing and some seasoning, to the bowl. Toss everything together once more and serve immediately.
