Healthy Mackerel Dip

Healthy Mackerel Dip

This week I wanted to share with you one of the easiest dips I know. This dip is a fantastic way of increasing your oily fish (omega 3) intake which is great for heart health, and it really is super versatile.


I have eaten this mackerel dip as a snack with oatcakes, as a starter with slices of pitta bread, and with a roasted chickpea salad and crackers for a balanced lunch. I really do love this dip and it can keep in the fridge for 1-2 days after making (just cover and check the use-by dates of your yoghurt/fish first!).



Healthy Mackerel Dip


  • 100g Fat free Greek yoghurt
  • 100g Smoked mackerel fillet


  1. Add the Greek yoghurt to a mixing bowl along with the mackerel fillet
  2. Optional: Add spinach to add colour/taste
  3. Mix the ingredients using a hand-blender/blender (add more yoghurt for a creamier dip)


Serves 2.
