2 large eggs
1 x pack of 2 smoked peppered mackerel fillets
100g bag of rocket, watercress, lamb’s lettuce or a mixture
200g cherry tomatoes, quartered
4 shallots, thinly sliced
2-4 slices of brown bread
For the vinaigrette:
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp wholegrain mustard
Salt and black pepper
Pinch of dried chilli flakes (optional)
1 tsp honey (optional)
- Place the eggs in a saucepan of cold water over a high heat and bring to the boil. Once boiling, cook the eggs for eight minutes, then remove using a slotted spoon. Run the eggs under cold water, then transfer into a bowl of iced water to prevent them from cooking further.
- Place all of the ingredients for the dressing into a small jar. Close the jar and shake to combine.
- To assemble, divide the leaves between two plates. Top with the tomatoes and shallots. Add an egg, a mackerel fillet and 1-2 slices of brown bread to each plate.
- Drizzle over the dressing and serve.

If you’re bringing this into the office for lunch, make the dressing in a small jar. Close the jar and bring it to work with you so you can dress your salad just before you eat it.
