Devilled Mackerel with Mint and Tomato Salad

Last Updated on 03/12/2021 by richard

This devilled mackerel recipe from Rick Stein is simple, healthy and very tasty. These are grilled but can just as easily be barbequed.

The devils paste, that’s made from cayenne pepper, smoked paprika and ground coriander works a treat with the oily fish.

If you are going to barbeque them, a few shellfish thrown on as well makes a lovely addition. As Jamie Oliver says “Don’t be afraid of barbecuing seafood – all you need is a nice, fresh selection and you’re away! ”

If you are a devilled mackerel lover like we are then try the piri-piri mackerel.
