Characterised by its crisp texture, white cabbage is a top choice for making coleslaw, or as an accompaniment to hearty winter meals and roast dinners. Try stirring cooked shredded cabbage into creamy mash with some finely sliced spring onions, then dot with butter, or try the delicious recipe below!
Smoked mackerel and cabbage slaw with potato wedges
500g/1lb 2oz potatoes, cut into wedges
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp mixed dried herbs
3 garlic cloves, bashed and not peeled
salt and pepper
400g/14oz plain natural yoghurt
1 lime, zest grated, and ½ the juice
2 tsp English mustard
½ white cabbage (about 500g/1lb 2oz), core removed, finely shredded
200g/7oz smoked mackerel, skin and any bones removed, flesh flaked
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
Place the potato wedges, olive oil, dried herbs, bashed garlic and a decent pinch of salt and pepper into a mixing bowl. Mix well with your hands to coat the potatoes in the herby oil. Tip into a large roasting tray, ideally in a single layer and place into the preheated oven. Roast for 35-45 minutes, turning now and again until evenly golden-brown, crisp on the outside and cooked through inside.
Meanwhile, mix together the yoghurt, lime zest, lime juice, mustard and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well and adjust the seasoning as necessary. Add the shredded cabbage, mixing well so that everything is coated.
Just before serving sprinkle in the smoked mackerel, fold once to roughly mix and serve with the hot potato wedges.Go Back
