A recipe for making spanish mackerel salad – Drain the oil from a can of pickled Spanish mackerel, and cut the fish in slices. Boil a bunch of red beets for half an hour in water to cover, then drain and bake for half an hour in a hot oven. Peel, slice thin, and cool thoroughly. Mix with the mackerel, add a small bunch of radishes sliced thin, and half a dozen sliced pickles. Surround with lettuce leaves and pour over a French dressing.
