This is one of my all time favourite oily-fish recipes; it’s salmon topped with Greek yoghurt & crushed rye crackers (with a sprinkle of heart healthy olive oil on top for good measure!). For heart health we should ideally eat two portions of fish a week, one of which is oily (such as salmon or mackerel, sardines, pilchards, fresh tuna etc.).
It was my mum who actually introduced me to this recipe and I cannot thank her enough, in fact this recipe is a hit even with people who don’t really like fish!
You can even turn this recipe into a healthy fish and chip supper; In case you didn’t know, I live super close to what use to be the world famous original Harry Ramsden’s Fish & Chip Shop which was established back in 1928 in a wooden hut in Guiseley, West Yorkshire! It’s my personal taste of Britain on a plate!
