Mackerel with orange and jicama salad


This dish works well with grilled tortillas or steamed rice. The trick here is to get the grill smoking hot before you start to prevent the fish from sticking.

You'll need

4 yellowtail or blue mackerel 2 oranges, sliced, plus juice of 1 extra 1 jicama, peeled and thinly sliced ½ white onion, finely chopped ½ cup coriander, coarsely chopped 60 ml (1/4 cup) extra-virgin olive oil Juice of ½ lemon Cayenne pepper, to serve Olive oil, for brushing

Method

  • 01
  • Heat a char-grill pan over high heat. Brush mackerel with olive oil, then grill, turning once, until charred (2-3 minutes each side). Turn off heat, cover fish with a heatproof bowl and stand to cook through (2-3 minutes). Remove fillets from mackerel (discard bones), flake and set aside.
  • 02
  • Toss remaining ingredients except cayenne in a bowl, then serve topped with mackerel and cayenne pepper to taste.
