Firstly this uncomplicated meal takes minutes to prepare and not much longer to cook. Simplicity aside, mackerel is a wonderful oily fish, so as well as being tasty it’s good for you.

Getting started
2

Preheat the oven to 200℃.

3

Clean and gutt the fish.
Remove the head, fins and tail if desired.

Note: If you can't handle a fish with head and bones, ask your fishmonger to cut the mackerel in boneless fillets or remove the parts you don't like.

4

Cut 3 or 4 diagonal slashes on one side of the mackerel.

5

Mix the olive oil with freshly ground black pepper, paprika and balsamic vinegar.

6

Put the mackerel in an ovenproof dish in a single layer with the cut side up. Spread a little bit of the mixture in the cuts and the remaining on the side of the mackerel.

7

Bake for 20 minutes or until the flesh in the cuts is opaque and firm.

Serve hot!

Add some chilli or curry powder for a little extra kick.

Due to the strong flavour of the mackerel, it's best served with a simple salad and steamed baby potato's.

You can also add a bit more taste by squeezing a small wedge of lemon over the mackerel.
