Pantry Basics: Lemon & Mint Quinoa Salad with Mackerel

Pantry Basics: Lemon & Mint Quinoa Salad with Mackerel

The Spanish mackerel from Good Fish is strong tasting without being offputtingly fishy. It’s nicely seasoned straight out of the jar, so it gives a touch of character to this salad, which I like (consider how sea salted air is so intrinsic to the pleasures of sitting on a beach). I feel that tuna or salmon would fade into the background in this context. The Spanish extra virgin olive oil that the mackerel sits in is an added bonus. It was so lovely that I drizzled it into the salad. And the random pops of sweetness you get from the raisins keep it from tasting like a one-hit wonder. The addition of fresh lemon juice and zest, as well as fresh peppermint leaves makes this salad taste like something you should be enjoying while sitting barefoot in the sun out on a boat somewhere. I hope you do!
