Smoked Mackerel Starter

Smoked Mackerel Starter
Centred around some smoked salmon that needed eating up and partnered with boiled egg and pickled beetroot, some greens and some really nice cottage cheese, or serek wiejski, that I found in a Polish food store, this little starter was more thrown together than purposefully constructed.

The cottage cheese is worth a mention. Rather than the usual texture, this was more like little pearls of curd in a much looser liquid. I think it is perhaps made from cream, rather than milk as the liquid was most definitely very creamy.

So, just a little inspiration for folks wanting a light and simple starter to a good meal or a neat way of using up a few things hanging around in the fridge.

Have fun ...
