  • Grilled mackerel is always a good idea! Especially when paired with a warm and hearty potato salad 🙌

    4 mackerel, butterflied, or 8 fillets, trimmed and pin-boned
    600g baby potatoes
    2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
    3 scallions, finely sliced
    4 tbsp. olive oil
    1 heaped tsp. whole grain mustard
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    2 tbsp. lemon juice
    2 level tbsp. fresh chives
    Zest of 1 lemon
    To serve: Steamed summer vegetables

    To cook the potatoes:
    ✅ Place the potatoes in a saucepan with enough boiling water to just cover them and simmer for about 10-15 minutes until tender. When the potatoes are cooked, drain them in a colander and then cut them into 2cm cubes.
    ✅ Transfer them to a serving bowl and keep them warm.

    To make the dressing:
    ✅ Combine the oil, mustard, garlic, lemon juice, zest and chives. Taste and season.
    ✅ Stir about 2/3 of the dressing through the potatoes along with the scallions. Reserve the rest of the dressing to drizzle over the cooked mackerel.
    ✅ Preheat the grill to high.

    To cook the mackerel:
    ✅ Line a grill pan or baking tray with lightly oiled tin foil then lay the fish skin side down.
    ✅ Spread the mustard over the mackerel. Season with salt and pepper.
    ✅ Place under a hot grill and cook for approximately 6 minutes.

    To serve:
    ✅ Serve the mackerel with the warm potato salad, summer vegetables and lemon wedges. Drizzle over the remaining dressing.
