Ingredients

  • 200g spinach
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 3 tbsp snipped fresh chives
  • 1 tbsp grated horseradish from a jar (horseradish sauce works fine too)
  • 200g smoked mackerel, skin removed
  • 8 medium free-range eggs
  • Lemon wedges to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C fan/gas 6. Put the spinach in a colander, pour over freshly boiled water from the kettle and leave to just wilt. When cool enough to handle, squeeze out excess water and divide among 4 individual pie dishes. Mix the crème fraîche with the chives and horseradish and season well. Flake the mackerel among the dishes, then share out the crème fraîche mixture. Crack 2 eggs into each dish. Season with a little salt and plenty of pepper.
  2. Cover each dish with foil, then bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes until the whites of the eggs are set with just the faintest wobble. Stand for 2 minutes, then serve with lemon wedges for squeezing.
