We’re working our way through British chef and “lightening-up” empress Lorraine Pascale’s new book, Everyday Easy. Just because it’s light and simple doesn’t mean it can’t be flavor-packed and beautiful. This light but filling smoked-fish salad has a little bit of everything you want. 

One of my favorite foods, which I love served whole, is mackerel — its opalescent skin slashed, the fresh fish lightly grilled and then served with a tart gooseberry sauce, or smoked mackerel in a salad, straight from the package. A large dollop of horseradish sauce can stand up to this intensely flavored fish with some tart Granny Smith apples to cut through its inviting fattiness.
