Mackerel is a wonderfully cheap, sustainable and nutrient-dense fish. Quick to cook this grilled mackerel with tangy pesto makes a great easy weeknight dinner, served alongside some buttered steamed potatoes.
Heat a little ghee in a pan over medium to high heat
Season the mackerel with salt and pepper and place in the pan
Cook about 4 minutes on the first side, turn and cook a further 1 minute on the second side
Remove to a fresh plate
To make the pesto: combine the herbs, nuts, lemon juice and olive oil in a small food processor and blitz to combine – you don’t want to puree it, a nice loose and crunchy pesto is what you’re looking for
Drizzle the pesto over the fish, garnish with herbs and served with buttered steamed potatoes
