Homemade mackerel topping is an ideal filling for pitta bread


The method

  1. 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.
  2. Add in the crème fraîche and lemon juice and mix it all up. If your mackerel wasn’t peppered, you might like to add some but it should be salty enough.
  3. Cut the pitta in half to form two pockets and fill with the mackerel and watercress. Serve with the salad.
