Sunday's Brunch: Mackerel Stir Fry

Happy Sunday ;)

I was at Sainsburys (weekly food shopping) this morning and saw a packet of mixed vegetables (reduced to 69p from £1 because they'd be expired after today) and immediately had the idea to make myself a quick and easy stir-fry for brunch.

I hadn't eaten breakfast because I wanted to get my shopping done asap so the only thing I'd eaten was a handful of brazil nuts (I always try to eat something no matter how little for breakfast). I bought some smoked mackerel and some oranges.

Why oranges? Well, I'd seen a few recipes in my Everyday Paleo recipe book using oranges in stir fries and I wanted to try it out.


Ingredients

1 pk Mixed Vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, carrot, onion)
Half a pack of Smoked Mackerel
1 Orange
1 Tbsp of coconut oil

Mackerel Stir-Fry
  1. Heat the coconut oil in a pan. 
  2. Add vegetables and season with ginger. 
  3. Stir fry for a few minutes. 
  4. Add mackerel (I tore mine into smaller pieces) and squeeze an orange into mix. 
  5. Allow to cook for a few more minutes.
  6. Serve
Yum! :) The citrus flavour from the orange was nice, loved it!

Alternatives
  • You can use any vegetables of your choice 
  • Add to or replace the fish eg other types of fish, chicken, turkey, beef, prawns/shrimps, mussels, etc
