Soused mackerel with crispbreads

This gorgeous soused mackerel recipe from food blogger Helen Graves is infused with flavours of coriander seed and lemon. Served with our crispbreads and crème fraîche, this makes a light and refreshing lunch.

Cooking Time: 20 minutes, plus 24 hours sousing time
Serves: 4

Soused mackerel
4 mackerel fillets
350ml of white wine vinegar
50g of sugar
1 tbsp of salt
1/4 red onion, finely sliced
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp of coriander seeds
1/2 unwaxed lemon, zested (if removing in strips instead of using a zested, make sure you remove any white pith)

To serve:
Crème fraîche
Peter’s Yard Original crispbreads


  1. To begin, place all of the ingredients (apart from the mackerel fillets) in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely.
