A real healthy wonderful bright lunch meal!


  • 1 398 ml can of Romano beans
  • 1 125g can of olive oil packed Mackerel (or tuna, salmon, smoked trout)

  • 25g sliced red onion

While potatoes are cooking, pour beans out of can into a colander and rinse with cold water. Let drain.

Cut potato into 1/4 inch thick rounds.

On an oval serving dish, place a sparse layer of potatoes, sprinkle with some of the red onion, Romano beans and fennel. Put some of the Mackerel on top, and drizzle some of the olive oil over it all, and season lightly with salt and pepper.

Place a second layer of the potatoes, onions,  fennel, and Mackerel over the first layer. Drizzle the rest of the olive oil, and season lightly again with salt and pepper.

Garnish with the fresh chopped parsley.
