Recipe Ingredients

4 SMOKED MACKEREL FILLETS (175G EACH)
2 TABLESPOONS PURE PERFECT BAKING
1 TBSP CHOPPED FRESH PARSLEY
HOLLANDAISE SAUCE
115G PURE PERFECT BAKING
2 EGG YOLKS
1-2 TBSP LEMON JUICE
SALT & GROUND WHITE PEPPER TO SEASON
4 POACHED EGGS

Method

Hollandaise: Melt the Pure spread in a pan. Whisk together the lemon juice, egg yolks, salt and pepper until completely smooth.
Put the egg yolks in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. Pour the melted Pure spread, in a steady stream, over the egg yolk mix and beat with a wooden spoon to make a smooth, creamy sauce. Add lemon juice to taste.

Mackerel: Pan fry the mackerel in a hot pan with the melted Pure spread for 2 minutes each side, until warmed through.

Serve with a poached egg on top of the mackerel and pour over the hollandaise. Sprinkle with parsley. If necessary, re-hydrate the hollandaise with some warm water.

Tips: To brown the hollandaise, place the dish under a hot grill for 1 minute.
