Method

  1. Scrub the potatoes, then dry and prick each one several times with a sharp knife.
  2. Microwave Method: Cook one potato (225g/8oz) for 6 mins on full power (800W), turn half way through cooking. Allow to stand for 1 - 2 minutes before serving. If cooking more than one potato at a time you need to increase the cooking time accordingly.
  3. Oven Method: Rub a few drops of olive oil into the potato skin, place the potatoes in a pre-heated oven at 200°C/400°F/gas 6 on a baking tray with salt sprinkled around the potato. Bake for 1¼ hours or until soft.
  4. When the potato is almost ready, in a bowl mix together the mackerel fillets, discarding the skin, with the spring onions and creme fraiche and serve on the jacket.
