    Mackerel buns with chorizo mayo

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Makes: 12


    1 tbsp mild olive oil
    190g pack Cooks’ Ingredients Catalunya Chorizo, halved lengthways
    3 tbsp mayonnaise 1 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon 4 large mackerel fillets, each cut into 3 pieces
    70g bag Waitrose Wild Rocket
    Squeeze of lemon juice
    Pack of Waitrose 12 Assorted Mini Rolls, halved


    1. Heat a pan with a little drizzle of oil and fry the chorizo until golden and crisp. Scoop from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on a plate lined with kitchen paper. Mix ½ tbsp of the chorizo oil from the pan with the mayonnaise and tarragon and set aside.

    2 Using kitchen paper, wipe the pan clean and heat another drizzle of oil. S.eason the mackerel and fry over a high heat, skin-side down, until almost cooked and the skin is crisp. Turn the fish to seal the other side – ensure it is cooked through, then remove from the pan.

    3. Wipe the pan clean again, then place each bun, cut-side down, in the hot pan and toast lightly. Mix the rocket with the chorizo and add a squeeze of lemon. 4 Spread both halves of the buns with the mayo. Pile the rocket and chorizo onto the bottom halves of the buns and top each with a piece of mackerel and the bun top.
