Try a burger alternative with this mouthwatering smoked mackerel version served with a side of crispy sweet potato fries. It's the perfect combination of smoky salt balanced with the creaminess of Jarlsberg cheese. 

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.
  2. Slice the sweet potatoes lengthways and then into long chips. On a large baking sheet, toss them in 2 tbsp of olive oil and season well. Bake for 30-40 minutes, turning once.
  3. To make the mackerel burgers, combine the dill, gherkins and onion and fish in a food processor until well mixed. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Form into 4 burgers, put on a baking tray and chill until firmed up.
  4. When the burgers are chilled, cook on barbecue or heat the remaining olive oil in a large frying pan and fry for 4 minutes on each side or until golden and hot through. Once you have turned the burgers, add a slice of Jarlsberg cheese on top to melt, if using. Serve in a granary roll with the sweet potato chips on the side.
