  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

  • 150g green beans
  • Small bag of salad leaves

  1. Whisk the olive oil and lemon juice, season and set aside.
  2. Cook the green beans in boiling salted water for 2-3 minutes, until just tender, then refresh under cold water, drain and cut in half. Tip the salad leaves into a large bowl and add the beans.
  3. Peel off the skin from the mackerel fillets and tear the flesh into bite-size pieces. Add to the salad with the tomatoes.
  4. Add the dressing and toss well. Divide between 2 large plates and scatter with the vegetable crisps to serve.
