Ingredients

  • 300g cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 tsp capers, rinsed
  • ½ small bunch flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • ½ small bunch mint, chopped
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 large or 4 small mackerel fillets

Tip

Tip
You can swap half the cauliflower for diced boiled potatoes if you’d like to make the salad more substantial.

Method

  1. Heat the grill and bring a pan of water to the boil. Drop the cauliflower into the water, then cook for 4-5 mins until just tender. Zest and juice half the lemon, then mix with the capers, parsley, mint, olive oil and garlic in a salad bowl. When the cauliflower is cooked, drain, then stir into the herby dressing with some seasoning while still hot.

  2. Put the mackerel on a baking tray, zest the remaining lemon half over it, season, then grill for a couple of mins on each side. Cut the lemon into wedges. Serve alongside the mackerel and cauliflower salad.
