Potato and horseradish work really well together in this simple soup and they also partner smoked mackerel happily. You can do so much with smoked mackerel, it’s such a useful convenience food. The dressing I’ve used here is lovely and zingy, finishing off the soup perfectly.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
olive oil, for cooking
1 large white onion, peeled and chopped
2 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
1 bay leaf
300g potato, peeled and sliced
1 litre Vegetable stock
3 tablespoons creamed horseradish
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

For the dressing

Quantity Ingredient
1 lemon, Finely grated zest and juiced
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
200ml olive oil

To garnish

Quantity Ingredient
4 smoked mackerel fillets, skinned

Method

  1. Heat a medium saucepan and add a generous drizzle of olive oil. When hot, add the onion, garlic and bay leaf and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, without colouring. Add the potato and then pour in the stock. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes until the potato is tender. Now stir in the horseradish.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a blender and add some salt and pepper. Blitz for about 2 minutes until smooth. Taste the soup and add more horseradish if you like more heat and/or salt and pepper as needed. Pour into a clean pan and set aside until ready to serve.
  3. To make the dressing, whisk the ingredients together and season with salt and pepper to taste; set aside.
  4. When ready to serve, reheat the soup and check the mackerel for pin bones. Divide the soup between 4 warmed bowls. Flake the smoked mackerel into chunks and float on top. Finish each serving with a good tablespoonful of the dressing.
