Source: 
Serves: 2
 
Mackerel is a very tasty fish that's super easy to cook! With this recipe ready in about 20 minutes, it's a great weeknight staple.
Ingredients
  • 3 shallots
  • 2 lemons
  • 4 mackerel fillets
  • olive oil
  • ½ tsp harissa
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 200g tin chickpeas, drained
  • A small bunch of coriander, chopped
  • A small bunch of mint, chopped
Instructions
  1. Peel and finely slice the shallots. Put them in a dish, squeeze over one of the lemons. Zest the remaining lemon into a bowl and then slice the pith off all over and cut the lemon segments out of the pith into the same bowl.
  2. Oil the skin-side of each mackerel fillet and lay them on a baking sheet. Mix the harissa and cumin with a little oil and brush this over the flesh-side, season with some salt. Heat a grill to high and grill the fillets until they start to blister, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Drain the shallots and mix with the chickpeas, lemon zest and segments, herbs and a little olive oil. Serve 2 mackerel fillets per person (less/more depending on size and appetite!) with some of the chickpeas.
