Mackerel with French Beans

Adapted from the Silver Spoon Cookery book

Serves 2

This was my first-time cooking Mackerel and it definitely won’t be the last. The French beans compliment the oiliness of the fish so nicely.


2 tbsp. olive oil

1 onion (sliced)

1 carrot (chopped)

1 fresh thyme sprig

150g green beans (trimmed)

1 tomato (chopped)

2 tbsp. capers

1 Mackerel

Salt and pepper


Heat 1tbsp olive oil in pan. Add onion, carrot and thyme. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. Add beans and stir frequently for 15 minutes. Add tomato and capers. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat remaining oil in another pan. Add mackerel and cook until golden brown and fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove with a slotted spoon and add to the pan of vegetables. Cook for a further 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Serve with The Vine Guys Sauvignon Blanc
