Mackerel with Orange Sauce


  • 10 Oz. mackerel, filleted with skin on
  • 1-2 tsp hot sauce (to taste)
  • 1 small orange, juice and grated zest
  • 1 bunch coriander, very roughly sliced
  • 2 oz. pine nuts, toasted
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paparika
  • 2 tsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil



Sift flour with smoked paparika

Roll the mackerel fillets in the sifted flour mixture

Shake off excess flour and set the fish aside in a single layer.

To make the glaze, whisk together 1 tbsp olive oil, the orange zest and juice, and the hot sauce into a small bowl.

Heat remaining olive oil in a frying pan until very hot but not smoking.

Fry the fish fillets for 5 minutes on the skin side; flip, then fry 5 minutes on the flesh side.

When the fish is nearly cooked (it should looked firm), cover the fillets with the spicy orange glaze; bring to a boil and allow the liquid to bubble until sticky.

Sprinkle with pine nuts and coriander and serve.
