Jamie Oliver Carbonara of smoked mackerel recipe on Jamie’s Money Saving Meals

Jamie Oliver makes smoked mackerel carbonara on Jamie’s Money Saving Meals that works out at around 83 pence per portion.

Jamie says: “This is a lovely twist in the tale of a traditional carbonara that uses smoked fish instead of bacon. For me, it’s the subtle emulsion of cooking water, eggs and Parmesan that gives that really comforting carbonara experience, along with something smoky – in this case the lovely mackerel – and lots of black pepper.”

The ingredients are: 320 g dried penne, 1 onion, 1 large courgette, 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, 130 g smoked boneless mackerel fillets, olive oil, 2 large free-range eggs, 100 ml semi-skimmed milk and 40 g Parmesan cheese.
