When we think of French food we imagine heavy sauces and rich dishes that are out of reach for anyone with a dairy allergy. I was pleasantly surprised to see celebrity chef Manu Feildel (on Sunrise) cook up a beautiful, simple and fresh fish meal that I could actually eat.

This simple recipe is gluten free + dairy free + egg free + nut free and is a really good example of how cooking simply with fresh ingredients makes it much easier to eat allergy free.

Watch Manu prepare smoked Mackerel with tomato and olives (and then make your own with just about any kind of fish).

Manu Feildel is a French chef, living in Australia, most widely known for his participation in Australia’s cookery competition programs Ready Steady Cook, MasterChef Australia and My Kitchen Rules. You can follow Manu on Twitter.
