Grilled mackerel and salsa verde on sourdough

A festival of kosher flavours

Prep:

Cook:

Serves:

    This dish is perfect for eating al fresco. Enjoy these sandwiches on one of those first spring afternoons when the warm sun finally breaks through after a long winter. Although these are essentially glorified sandwiches, they are full-on flavour: chilli, garlic, lime, salty capers, cooling cucumber, all brought together by some tasty grilled mackerel and a dollop of mayonnaise.

    Parve Serves: 4
    Preparation: 10 minutes, plus 10 minutes marinating
    Cooking: 4 - 8 minutes

    Ingredients

    ● 1 cucumber, peeled
    ● 6 tbsp white wine vinegar
    ● 2 tsp sugar
    ● Large pinch of salt
    ● 1 mild red chilli, finely chopped
    ● 4 very fresh mackerel, filleted
    ● Extra virgin olive oil
    ● 8 slices of white sourdough bread
    ● 4 tbsp mayonnaise
    ● Fresh rocket

    For the salsa verde
    ● 6 tbsp flat leaf parsley, very finely chopped
    ● 4 tbsp rinsed capers, very finely chopped
    ● 8 tbsp extra virgin oil
    ● Juice of 1 lime
    ● 1 clove garlic, crushed
    ● Large pinch of salt

    Method

    ● Using a peeler, peel ribbons from the cucumber, turning it as you go to get ribbons of an equal width. Once you reach the seeds at the centre, discard this part.
    ● Mix the vinegar with the sugar, salt and chopped chilli. Drop in the cucumber ribbons and marinate for 10 minutes before draining.
    ● Mix together the salsa verde ingredients.
    ● Preheat a grill to its highest setting.
    ● Season the fish with salt and black pepper and rub with olive oil.
    ● When the grill is hot, place the fillets, skin side up, on a lightly greased tray and grill for 4 minutes until the skin is crisp and the flesh is cooked. Remove from the grill.
    ● Lightly toast the bread, spread mayonnaise on 4 of the slices and lay 2 fish fillets on each. Spoon over the salsa verde and then top each off with some drained cucumber. Cover with some rocket and the remaining slices of toast.
