Creamy Smoked Mackerel & White Wine Yorkshire Pasta


This dish is inspired by another award winning product, the stunning smoked mackerel by the Yorkshire Smokehouse. The meaty fish is bold enough to stand up to the robust texture of the pasta tubes, which are encapsulated with white wine sauce.

The dish is garnished with sprouting radish to highlight the peppery notes delivered by the mackerel and finished with lemon. A dish light enough to be enjoyed as a lunchtime treat!
