Blistering, charred mackerel slicked with a lime, chilli, ginger salsa to balance the oily fish. This recipe is adapted from Nigel Slater — he's a fiend for mackerel and knows how to do it right! On a rainy day, this recipe will transcend you to a seaside, barbecue filled, holiday.






    • Turn on the grill, and line a baking tray with greaseproof or tinfoil.
    • Dry the mackere well with kitchen paper, rub with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the mackerel on a rack, that sits into the baking tray (alternatively use a grill tray).
    • Place fairly close, under the grill and cook on both sides till blistering, blackened and cooked through, about 15 minutes
    Mackerel is full of fat so very forgiving with overcooking.
    • While the mackerel cooks, get on with the green salsa.
    • Spoon the green salsa between four plates and serve the mackerel on top.
