  • 4 tbsp Half-fat creme fraiche
  • Extra: watercress/rocket
  • Healthy: 1 lemon

Method

  1. Scrub the potatoes, then dry and prick each one several times with a sharp knife.

  3. Oven Method: Rub a few drops of olive oil into the potato skin, place the potatoes in a pre-heated oven at 200C/400F/gas 6 on a baking tray with salt sprinkled around the potato. Bake for 1 hours or until soft.
  4. When the potato is almost ready, in a bowl mix together the mackerel fillets, discarding the skin, with the spring onions and creme fraiche and serve on the jacket.
