Fish and seaweed are natural bedfellows; a tried and tested combination of nutritious delights. And whilst we all love Shony and salmon, this recipe by Mara's SeaEO Fiona is a great way to enjoy something a bit different with a more powerful flavour.
So find yourself some fresh mackerel at your local Welch's fishmonger. Grab some (seasonal) asparagus.* And don't be afraid to be heavy handed with the Great Taste Award-winning Applewood Smoked Dulse!
*tenderstem broccoli, sugar snap peas and mangetout are all great substitutes!
