    This is a Malaysian spicy soup featuring mackerel. It uses a lot of Asian flavourings like lemongrass, galangal, shrimp paste, Vietnamese mint and chilli.

    This is a great dish to serve smoked mackerel in a different way with warm toast and butter with a side salad. This dish reminds me of winter Sunday afternoons sat in front of the fire. The amount of pate this recipe makes is sufficient to serve 4 to 6.

    This is a very tasty Indian fish curry called ayila meen curry. It makes use of tinned mackerel which is a strong tasting and oily fish. One for the seafood lovers!

    This pie is named 'the omega' because it contains fish that are rich in omega oils. It is also unusual because it doesn't use pastry as a top crust but instead uses a polenta soda bread mix.

    This pate combines the health benefits of oily fish and nuts, a combination which goes surprisingly well together. It can be eaten as a lunch or snack on bread or toast and takes minutes to prepare from canned fish. Sardines or any other oily fish could be substituted for mackerel.

    I'm a great believer that some things that are assumed to be sweet can just as easily be savoury. Here for example, profiteroles filled with mackerel pate and served with a spicy tomato dipping sauce. This makes an excellent starter to any meal. Serve with a salad. The one shown in the photo is made from finely sliced nasturtium and sorrel leaves with chopped nasturtium flowers. Quite peppery but also refreshing.

    If I have a fault it is that if I see a dish or technique on TV then I get convinced that I can do it. This is not an original idea and it first appeared for me on an episode of MasterChef. It is fiddly and time-consuming but the results are impressive and will wow your dinner guests.
