- Remove the skin and flake the smoked mackerel flesh into a bowl. Break it down with a fork, the more you mix, the smoother the topping will be. If you prefer a coarser type, go easy with the fork.

- Serve the creamy mackerel, garnished with the parsley, with the oatcakes and rashishes on the side.
