Marvellous Mackerel

Mackerel pineapple sweetheart cabbage and spinach

Mackerel, pineapple, sweetheart cabbage, and spinach

Another day, another fish based salad type concoction for dinner.


It’s quick, easy, damn tasty, and Paleo – what more do you, neigh, could you, want…?


  • Cooked mackerel, (here I was using about 175g-ish), skin removed and flaked
  • ½ a red onion, finely chopped
  • ½ a pineapple, peeled, cored, and finely chopped
  • ½ a sweetheart cabbage, shredded
  • 1 good sized green chilli, (choose one with a bit of “oooomph!”), finely chopped
  • several good handfuls of baby spinach leaves, washed
  • lemon juice
  • freshly ground black pepper (lots!)
  • sesame seed oil


  • Prepare veg / fruit
  • Toss into salad bowl
  • Prepare fish
  • Into the bowl with that, too
  • Mix well
  • Season with the pepper
  • Dress with the lemon juice and sesame oil
  • Done

It doesn’t get a lot better than that, now does it….?








Seafood salad – another variation on a theme

Prawn and broccoli salad

Prawn and broccoli salad

Yet another variation on the seafood salad theme – this time with prawns and broccoli.

Cooked prawns, shredded carrot, shredded red cabbage, sliced red onion, lettuce leaves, raw broccoli florets. Dress with fresh lemon juice, a drizzle of sesame oil, and a good blast of black pepper. That’s it. 

Conference pears worked very well as the dessert fruit, by the way.
