Assembly

After removing all bones, mix the smoked mackerel with the mayonnaise, horseradish sauce, curry sauce and onions. Add paprika and garam masala if so desired, and stir. Toast two slices of bread. Arrange the mackerel salad on the toast, add 2-3 slices cherry tomatoes and sprinkle with basil.

Note: This salad can easily be modified with various spices to taste completely different. Don’t be afraid to experiment, but be careful not to overwhelm the mackerel taste.

Serve with a side of caper berries and remoulade for dipping.
