November 10, 2016 — Dinner Party
Every now and then my friends and I have a ‘What Dad Cooked Come Dine With Me’ evening, where as couples, we pick a dish to make from the site. So… next time… I’m making these stupendous little one bite snacks. Dad mentioned although they are made from normal smoked mackerel, the flavour can really be enhanced with some Japanese ingredients.

These are made from whole smoked mackerel. They sell them at Websters in Kingston Market and Williams and Bunkell in Claygate. Do seek them out from a fishmonger near your, they are stunningly tasty. What was left from my pickings, I made into these Japanese inspired nibbles. The starting point was yuzu kosho, my latest fave condiment which I sourced from Atari-ya in Norbiton. The flavour is basically hot citrus, so compliments fish well. There are many other Japanese ingredients I’ve added – but you can substitute most of these: lemon and pepper for the yuzu kosho for example.
A perfect winter warmer – Cassoulet!
