This is an amazingly tasty budget meal that will only cost you a matter of a couple of pounds yet will feed a whole family, and trust me it will be a winner! Not only is smoked mackerel one of the cheapest fish you can buy it is also really good for you containing great levels of omega 3 and paired with some green vegetables it is a lot healthy and nutritious then your average pasta dish. Here is what you will need:
- 250g (half a pack) of spaghetti.
- 1 pack of smoked mackerel.
- A handful of mushrooms.
- A handful of asparagus.
- A handful of sugar snap peas.
- 1/4 of a red onion.
- 2 cloves of garlic.
- 1tsp of wholegrain mustard.
- 1/2 a tub of reduced fat creme fraiche.
- Juice of a whole lemon.
- A large bunch of fresh parsley.
- Parmesan to serve (optional).
First of all start cooking your spaghetti to the packet instructions and then prep your vegetables, I roughly chopped the onion and mushroom, diced the garlic and cut the asparagus into thirds. Put your onion, garlic and mushrooms in a frying pan with a little olive oil and cook until softened, after add your asparagus, sugar snap peas and a 100ml of boiled water. Cook for a further 10 minutes to allow the green vegetables to start to soften.
