Serves 2
Prep Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 5 Mins

2 smoked mackerel fillets
4 tsp. fromage frais
4 tsp. chopped chives
juice of half lemon
1 jar roasted peppers in olive oil
1 mini foccacia
fresh salad leaves or new potatoes

Remove the skin from the mackerel and then roughly mash the flesh with a fork.

Add the chopped chives, fromage frais and lemon juice and season well with salt and pepper

Drain the peppers and roughly chop half of them, cutting the remainder into strips.

Mix the chopped peppers into the mackerel mix.

Split the mini foccacia in half horizontally and drizzle with the oil from the peppers, then lightly toast on both sides to crisp up.

Divide the mackerel between the bruschetta, and then top with the sliced peppers.

Place under a high grill and cook until heated through.

Serve with crisp salad leaves for lunch or add new potatoes for a light summer supper.
