Ingredients

  • 2 x 300g/10oz mackerel, filleted and skin on or 4 x 75g/3oz mackerel fillets, skin on
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1small orange, grated zest and juice
  • 1-2 tsp harissa paste (to taste, as brands vary)
  • 50g pine nut, toasted
  • small bunch coriander, very roughly chopped

Method

  • STEP 1

    Roll the mackerel fillets in the flour sifted with smoked paprika and seasoning. Shake off excess flour and set the fish aside in a single layer.

  • STEP 2

    Put 1 tbsp of the olive oil, the orange zest and juice and the harissa paste into a small bowl, and whisk together. Heat a frying pan with remaining olive oil until very hot. Fry the fish fillets for 5 mins, first on the skin side, then on the flesh side.

  • STEP 3

    When the fish is nearly cooked – it should look firm – pour over the orange and harissa glaze, bring to the boil and allow the liquid to bubble until sticky. Sprinkle over the pine nuts and coriander.
