Method

  1. Whisk the vinegar, mustard, 2 tsp of the oil and a little seasoning together in a large bowl.
  2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan. Add the squash to the frying pan, season and cook, stirring, for 12-15 mins. Add the beans to the water, cook for 1 min, then add the broccoli and cook for 3 mins more. Drain well.
  3. Tip the squash into the bowl with the dressing. Add the beans, broccoli and pumpkin seeds, toss well to combine and set aside. Cook the fish in the frying pan, skin-side down, for 2 mins, then flip over and cook for a further 1-2 mins until cooked through.
  4. Divide the salad between the plates, top with the mackerel and drizzle over any dressing left in the bowl.

This is a yummy and very healthy recipe. The dressing makes it a bit more interesting and flavoursome. I prefer to have smoked mackerel with it though rather than fresh. This also means you'll have one less pan to wash! Oh, and I bake the butternut squash in the oven instead of pan frying.
