Peppered Mackerel with a Green Olive Sauce and Crusty Bread
Marcus Wareing is back with this Peppered Mackerel with a Green Olive Sauce and Crusty Bread. Marcus loves the Mediterranean feel to this dish: the olive- flavoured sauce perfectly complements the strong- flavoured fish. There are a variety of peppercorns used here, as each type brings its own flavour to the sauce. Fresh almonds, a seasonal treat in spring or early summer, are a delight with their soft, milky texture, but they can be left out if they’re not available. When Marcus makes the pepper seasoning (and any dried seasoning mixes) at home, he often makes extra to keep for another time. If you want to do the same, keep them in old spice pots and tins, but remember to label them! Serve the fish and sauce as they are with crunchy bread, or with boiled new potatoes.
