Hoisin mackerel pancakes
Using sweet ingredients with stronger-flavoured fish like mackerel helps tempt children to eat it. However, sweet sauces such as hoisin are a source of added sugar, so use them in moderation.
3 mackerel fillets, all bones removed, cut into finger-length strips
2 tbsp hoisin sauce, plus extra for dipping
4 spring onions
2 Little Gem lettuces
1 tsp vegetable oil
10 Chinese pancakes
1 Marinate the mackerel in the hoisin sauce while you prepare the veg. Cut the spring onions and cucumber into thin matchsticks, and separate the lettuce leaves.
2 Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the mackerel and fry for 3-4 mins until sticky and caramelised. Heat the pancakes following pack instructions. Serve everything in the middle of the table and let everyone help themselves.
