Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Spicy Smoked Mackerel Puttanesca

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, carefully add the capers and cook for 1-2 min until they have puffed up a little, then transfer them to kitchen paper with a slotted spoon and set aside, reserving the pan and oil for later – these are your crispy capers

2 Spicy Smoked Mackerel Puttanesca

Peel and finely dice the red onion[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

3 Spicy Smoked Mackerel Puttanesca

Boil a kettle

Return the pan with the oil to a medium heat

Once hot, add the diced onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 5-6 min or until softened

4 Spicy Smoked Mackerel Puttanesca

Add the linguine to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook the linguine for 8-10 min or until it's cooked with a slight bite

Once done, drain the linguine, reserving 300ml [600ml] of the starchy pasta water

5 Spicy Smoked Mackerel Puttanesca

Once the onion has softened, add the chopped garlic, chilli flakes (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and tomato paste and cook for 1 min 

Add the chopped tomatoes, baby spinach and a pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 6-7 min or until a thick pasta sauce remains 

6 Spicy Smoked Mackerel Puttanesca

Meanwhile, chop the basil finely, including the stalks

Grate the cheddar cheese

Peel the skin from the smoked mackerel and discard, then break it into rough, bite-sized pieces

7 Spicy Smoked Mackerel Puttanesca

Add the smoked mackerel, black olives, drained linguine and most of the chopped basil to the pan

Add a few splashes of starchy pasta water and mix well until all of the linguine is coated in the sauce – this is your spicy mackerel puttanesca
