Bonus Bits

– As with all cold water fish mackerel is an oily fish. and is therefore rich in omega 3 fatty acids, essential for the body & brain. Our bodies can’t make this type of fatty acid, so we need to include it in our diet.

– Always remove the base of the stem of mushrooms before use, as these are where any impurities will be.
