Mackerel with garlic chilli and ginger dressing

With a freezer full of mackerel after a recent fishing trip, it was time to try out some home cooking.

For me, when it comes to fish, I like to keep things simple and let the real flavour come through. And when you know your fish is as fresh as this was, it’s about making it the star of the show.

So, a simple mix of ginger, garlic and chilli mixed with lemon juice, a dollop of honey and some chopped coriander provided a tasty dressing.

Fish scored and lightly oiled, then grilled and dressed, served with in season organic new potatoes and fresh salad leaves.

Simple, healthy and delicious. In fact it was so tasty, we’ve had it a couple of times already.

Thanks to my good pal Katie over at Feeding boys and a firefighter for the inspiration for a foodie blog post.
