Zesty mackerel fillets with raspberry and rocket salad
‘Mackerel and summer go hand in hand. This is one of my favourite dishes on the menu at Headingley. The flavour of mackerel goes superbly with the freshness of lemon and coriander - served with rocket and raspberries, it’s the ultimate summer salad. Mackerel is also full of healthy essential oils.’
