Signature Salad with Mackerel

You shall have a fishy on a little dishy…

Introducing our Signature Salad. Mackerel, couscous, pomegranate and spring onion salad with a lemon twist and micro herb garnish. Served on a bed of salad leaves with our delicious Benenden sauce on the side, yum!

As some of you may know, we previously topped our Signature Salad with Salmon that first appeared on our menu last summer, but to offer a refreshing change to our customers our chefs started exploring new tasty options. After a week of research, they decided on Mackerel.

Mackerel like other oily fish such as Salmon, Trout, Sardines and fresh Tuna contain protein, zinc, selenium, vitamins A and D and some B vitamins. The Omega-3 fatty acids that are contained in oil-rich fish give it a superfood status.

We should really call it our Signature Superfood Salad. Research on the health benefits of oily fish began when researchers observed Eskimos, who mainly eat oily fish, had fewer average heart attacks and strokes.

There are many health benefits of oily fish. If you’d like to read more, all of these can be found on the below link from the NHS.
