Manx Kippers

Manx Kippers are from the Isle of Man; they're herrings or small oily fish that have been butterflied and traditionally cured but not dyed (as with many other smoked kippers you see in the supermarkets). Not only are they utterly delicious to eat - they are also very good for you, in particular for reducing cholesterol levels. Naturally high in omega-3 fatty acids, kippers are just the thing to keep your blood, your heart and your skin really healthy... And they're particularly good served with a big wedge of lemon and either some new potatoes dressed in olive oil and a little Dijon mustard OR some wholegrain basmati rice and some kale or spinach.


  • Manx Kippers (from fishmongers usually)
  • Lemon (to serve)

Heat the oven to 180˚c

Put the Kippers on a baking tray lined with some greaseproof paper

Cook them for 15 – 20 minutes or until cooked through and really hot

These are good on their own for breakfast with some wholegrain toast

OR for supper with some wholegrain rice; maybe some tomato salad or some spinach
