Smoked Mackerel Bulgar Salad

This was a clean out the fridge job, using last bits of things I had leftover, but it turned into a really lovely and healthy lunch!

Smoked Mackerel Bulgar Salad
(Serves 1)

60g bulgar wheat
1/2 carrot, grated
1/2 courgette, grated
4 stalks tenderstem broccoli, cut into inch long pieces
1 tbsp olive oil
squeeze lemon juice
salt and pepper
1 tbsp pine nuts, toasted
1 smoked mackerel fillet, skin removed

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the bulgar wheat according to packet instructions, adding the broccoli for the last 3-4 mins. Drain and then run under the cold tap. Drain again.

Combine the bulgar, broccoli, carrot and courgette in a bowl or lunchbox. Drizzle over the olive oil and lemon juice and season. Mix well to combine.

Flake the smoked mackerel into chunks and put it on top of the bulgar. Sprinkle over the pine nuts and serve.
