Smoked paprika mackerel with gazpacho salad


This salad is just like a gazpacho, minus the puréeing. Have the vegetables well-chilled before you start to ensure the salad is super-fresh and crunchy. A splash of sherry vinegar cuts through the smokiness of the paprika and the oiliness of the mackerel.

You'll need

120 gm crustless day-old sourdough bread, coarsely torn 90 ml sherry vinegar 100 ml olive oil 200 gm each of cherry tomatoes and yellow grape tomatoes, halved 1 oxheart tomato, coarsely chopped ½ Spanish onion, thinly sliced ½ garlic clove, finely chopped 1 char-grilled red capsicum, coarsely torn (see note) 1 Lebanese cucumber, half-peeled, coarsely chopped 8 slimy mackerel fillets, pin-boned 1 tsp smoked sweet paprika

Method

  • 01
  • Place bread in a large bowl, drizzle with 50ml vinegar and 20ml olive oil. Add tomato, onion and garlic, season to taste, toss to combine and stand until bread starts to soften (4-5 minutes). Add char-grilled capsicum, cucumber and 40ml olive oil, season to taste, toss to combine and refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Heat 40ml olive oil in a large frying pan, add mackerel in batches, skin-side down and cook until golden (3-4 minutes). Turn and cook for another 30 seconds, then transfer to a plate. Remove pan from heat, add remaining vinegar and paprika, return to heat and stir until fragrant (1 minute). Serve mackerel with gazpacho salad, drizzled with pan juices.

Note Char-grilled capsicum is available from select delicatessens. You can char-grill your own if you prefer.
