Smoked Mackerel Salad 4, With Corn Or Beans

Smoked Mackerel Salad 4, with Corn

Mamta Gupta


This is an easy dish to make, specially when you are in a hurry. It tastes better with peppered smoked mackerel. If you have only plain one available, add a good helping (one teaspoon) of coarsely ground pepper. Amounts are approximate only and depends on your choice. Serves 2-3
