Mackeral is cheap, sustainable and good for you! Lemon, rosemary and baby beetroot make perfect companions in this easy fish dish.
Pre-heat oven to 180 celsius.
Take the garlic and beets, drizzle with olive oil and wrap in tin foil. Bake in the oven at 180 celsius for 15 minutes until just softened. Next take the turnips and peel with a peeler and blanch in boiling, salted water for 6-8 minutes until just soft. When the beetroot is cooled, remove the skin and set aside.
Take the chopped shallot and sauté for 1 minute gently, add the beets and cook for a further 2 minutes then add the turnips, parsley and seasoning, set aside and keep warm. Next, mix the zest and juice with the chopped rosemary and mix in with the soft butter, take a mackerel fillet, season on both sides and cook skin side down a non-stick frying pan for 2 minutes. Turn over and add the flavoured butter and cook for a further 2 minutes. To serve, pile the hash on a plate, stack the mackerel fillets and spoon the pan juices over and around.

Being a frugal spender, and somebody who shops online a lot, I'm keen to hear from others how they go about cutting through all the daily sales & marketing "BS" from retailers to uncover offers which in reality offer good value. I've grown tired of the charade where retailers try to sell us everything under the sun at an apparently "unbeatable" prices. So I've begun seeking out ways to determine where the best deals are online at any given time. Once I've found a seemingly good deal on something, my basic process afterwards to confirm this is as follow: 1. Run a quick google search to price compare it against what other stores are charging (i.e. ignore RRP and focus on the actual market price). 2. If the price looks competitive, try to find ways to get it for even less (i.e. any coupon codes offering discounts available, do I get any extra discount for signing up to the online store's free newsletter, etc). 3. Check shipping rates, as these can vary wildly for online orders between different retailers (often effecting the overall competitiveness of the product). There's also other techniques I use (like where to look for the best offers in the first place), but this is probably a good starting point for now. What about you?
