    Grilled Mackerel with Ginger and Soy

    Serves: 2


    • 2 whole gutted and cleaned Waitrose Mackerel (approx 250g each)
    • Salt
    • 2cm piece peeled root ginger
    • 2 tbsp soy sauce
    • 1 tbsp medium sherry
    • 1 tbsp clear honey


    1. Sprinkle two whole gutted and cleaned Waitrose mackerel (about 250g each), with salt and leave for 15 minutes. Rinse and pat dry with kitchen paper. Mix together a 2cm piece of peeled root ginger, cut into thin sticks, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp medium sherry and 1 tbsp clear honey.
    2. Slash the flesh of each mackerel three times on both sides and put on a grill rack lined with foil. Spoon over half the soy mixture and grill for 5-7 minutes, turn and spoon over remaining soy mixture. Grill for a further 5-7 minutes, basting until the fish flakes easily from the bone.
