Tweaking the menu

What all of this ‘weather’ it seems that gooseberries (local anyhow) are not going to be ready for next weekend. On the other hand the Bucklers sorrel in my garden, small green shield shaped leaves which pack a citrus hit, are well away.

So last night I had fun testing and tasting some slender, just landed mackerel fillets with a little salad of pea shoots and sorrel. To add some striking colour and a wonderfully earthy hit, and inspired by a recent Drapers menu, I am adding a little grated raw beetroot and horseradish relish. Pretty tasty, pretty and tasty. Perfect.
