Serves 4

  • mackerel fillets 8 nos

  • Lemon juice of 2 lemons

  • 4 tbsp olive oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed

  • Salt and pepper 1 pinch

  • 1 Chopped parsley and lemon wedges for serving


  • 01

    Rinse the mackerel fillets and pat dry. Remove any stray bones with tweezers, and place the fillets in a large shallow dish.

  • 02

    Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil and crushed garlic with a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the fish and turn the mackerel fillets to coat. Cover the dish and leave to marinate for 15-20 minutes.

  • 03

    Heat a ridged griddle pan over a medium-high heat. Cook the fish fillets in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side. Cook the skin-side first, and take care when turning to ensure that the skin is released from the pan and does not stick.

    Transfer the fish to a serving dish. You may want to keep the grilled mackerel warm in a low oven while you cook the remaining fillets.

    Serve sprinkled with chopped parsley, and with wedges of lemon to squeeze over.
