  • About

I dream of landing a plump sea bass but the only fish I catch in Devon is the humble mackerel. However, very fresh mackerel tastes like a prince offish. It has a beautiful soft yet dense texture and a characteristic flavour which is at its best when grilled so that the blackened skin adds a hint of smokiness. The inspiration for this recipe comes from a family friend who visits every summer.
