    Devilled Mackerel

    This simple dish is set off perfectly by plain boiled rice, which makes a good counterpart to the oil-rich fish. Stir some chopped fresh coriander leaves into the rice to give it a lift. Mackerel is available from the Fish Service Counter, where staff will clean and fillet it for you.

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 12 minutes
    • Total time: 17 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 2


    • 1 fresh Cornish mackerel, about 500g, cleaned and head removed
    • 1½ tsp Colman's Mustard Powder
    • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
    • 1 tsp paprika
    • 2 tsp ground coriander


    1. Preheat the grill. Score the skin of the mackerel several times with a sharp knife. Combine the mustard and spices and rub all over the skin.
    2. Grill the mackerel on a rack in a grill pan for 5-6 minutes each side, until cooked. Spoon the pan juices over (optional).
