Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 2314 - Crispy Smoked Mackerel Caesar Salad

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Peel and finely chop (or grate) half [all] the garlic

Chop the capers roughly

 

 

2 2314 - Crispy Smoked Mackerel Caesar Salad

Combine the mayonnaise with the chopped garlic (don't like raw garlic? Go easy!), dried oregano, white wine vinegar, dijon mustard, chopped capers and 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil

Add half the grated Italian hard cheese and a pinch of salt and stir it all together – this is your caesar dressing

3 2314 - Crispy Smoked Mackerel Caesar Salad

Tear the outer leaves from the little gem lettuces

Shred the inner cores finely

4 2314 - Crispy Smoked Mackerel Caesar Salad

Rip the ciabatta roll[s] into small bite-sized pieces

Add the ripped ciabatta to a baking tray with a generous drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper

Give everything a good mix up and put the tray in the oven for 5 min or until golden and crisp – these are your golden croutons

5 2314 - Crispy Smoked Mackerel Caesar Salad

Remove the skin from the smoked mackerel fillets

Tear the mackerel into rough, bite-sized pieces

Add the torn mackerel to a bowl with the cornflour and give it a gentle mix up until the mackerel is fully coated

6 2314 - Crispy Smoked Mackerel Caesar Salad

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a very generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat

Once hot, add the coated mackerel and cook for 3-4 min, turning occasionally until golden and crisp

Tip: Don't turn the mackerel too often, as this will stop it from crisping!

Once done, transfer the crispy mackerel to kitchen paper and set aside

7 2314 - Crispy Smoked Mackerel Caesar Salad

Meanwhile, combine the shredded lettuce with half the caesar dressing (save the rest for later!)
