Mackerel with vegetables
Once a week, I keep cooking more easier than usual. For that, I always have frozen vegetables and canned steamed mackerel.
At home, we always eat oily fish, such as mackerel, more than once a week. Mackerel is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids a type of fat that is good for our health. It is a good source of protein, selenium and vitamin B12.
My kids love having mackerel with some peas and broccoli. These veggies are rich in vitamin K needed for blood clotting, which means it helps wounds to heal properly.
This recipe is an easy and wholesome way to eat your veggies and fish at any time.
- 140 g canned steamed mackerel, natural.
- 80 g fresh or frozen broccoli.
- 80 g frozen peas.
- fresh lemon juice (to taste).
- Drain the mackerel.
- Cook the frozen broccoli and peas, following the manufacturer instructions.
- Cut the cooked broccoli. Set aside.
- In a bowl mix the drained mackerel with the veggies. Add a splash of lemon juice.
*Due to mackerel is rich in fat, cream or butter-based sauces should be avoided.
