Mackerel and Cabbage Salad

Friday, April 12, 2013

A while ago I posted about a Tuna and Cabbage Salad I made, based on a recipe from Monday to Friday Cookbook. The original recipe called for mackerel but what I had was tuna. It was ok. Not great, but ok. I got a can of mackerel so I could try it as written (more or less - I seldom really follow a recipe!) and made it this week. It was much better with the mackerel than with the tuna. Basically it's just coleslaw (lots of shredded cabbage, some chopped onion, mayo, rice vinegar, pepper, cayenne and fresh parsley) with a can of drained mackerel added. It came to about $2 for a big bunch of the stuff. I ate it for two lunches though it could easily have been enough for three. The original recipe suggests serving it on a bed of lettuce and/or tomatoes. I can't really see serving it on lettuce, except maybe a bit of lettuce for presentation, but I do think that some halved cherry tomatoes would have been good in it. Or some chopped summer tomatoes. But I think the cherry tomatoes would be best.

    I've never eaten canned mackerel. I prefer fillets to canned fish, so I'll never be a true budget-maw! I still enjoy reading your posts and considering new ways to fix foods with budgeting and low carb eating as the foundation. Keep on posting.
