Mackerel, Mash and Asparagus

Not really a recipe post, but more a “you should try this, it was SOOOO good” post.

I’ve challenged myself to a week of paleo. Not in it’s purest form, as cutting out refined carbs, sweets, and processed stuff is one thing, but to take dairy away from me, too?  Well, that would be miserable.

Not that I am going overboard with dairy.  But I am still having milk in my coffee, a little bit of butter here and there.  A little cube of cheese nobbled from Elliot’s lunch.  You get the idea. 

But no biscuits.  Which is harder than I thought. 

Anyway, tonight we ate this

paleo mackerel

Smoked mackerel fillet, grilled for 3-4 minutes each side.  Just a plain mackerel fillet, not dressed up at all. 

Sweet potato mash, with butter, nutmeg, salt and pepper, and finely chopped raw spring onion.

Steamed asparagus.

It’s simple, and it was completely delicious.  I felt happy, and satisfied, and isn’t that the way food should make you feel?
