Ingredients

  • 75g fresh breadcrumbs

  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 30g butter, melted, plus extra for greasing
  • 8 mackerel fillets
  • 300g tomatoes, deseeded and chopped
  • 2 ripe avocados, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 4 tbsp olive oil

Method

  1. Preheat the grill to medium high. Mix the breadcrumbs in a bowl with the herbs, lemon zest and butter, and season well. Lay the mackerel skin-side down on a greased baking tray and top with the breadcrumbs.
  2. In another bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients and season. Grill the fish for 4-5 minutes until it’s cooked and the crust is golden. Serve with the salsa and new potatoes, if you like.
