Nigel Slater's substantial winter salad recipe It's quick and nutritious - a healthy warmed salad to cheer you of an evening.

A substantial winter salad, more of an assembly of delicious ingredients than hands-on cooking, but great for a quick light meal.



The recipe

Cook 200 gm of whole edamame beans in their pods in boiling, lightly salted water for 10 minutes. Drain and pop the beans out of the pods. Boil 150g of frozen peas in deep, boiling water until tender and drain. Flake 300g of smoked mackerel into large pieces. Tear 100g of ciabatta into large pieces and cook them in 3 tbsp of olive oil in a shallow, non-stick pan until pale gold and crisp. Chop a spring onion and add to the pan, then toss in the edamame, cooked and drained peas, and flaked smoked mackerel. Serve immediately. Enough for 2-3.



The trick

Keep the heat moderate and use a non-stick pan. Try to find whole smoked mackerel - they are often juicier than the fillets.



The twist

Use broad beans instead of edamame. An Arbroath smokie is a good substitute for the mackerel, or smoked sprats if you prefer. Add a little bacon, cut into postage stamp-sized pieces, to the spring onion. You could substitute cooked ham, torn into fat, juicy shreds, for this if you wish.
