2 x 300g/10oz mackerel, filleted and skin on
or 4 x 75g/3oz mackerel fillets, skin on
2 tbsp corn flour
½ tsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 small orange, grated zest and juice
1-2 tsp harissa paste (to taste, as brands vary)
50g pine nuts, toasted
small bunch coriander, very roughly chopped
Roll the mackerel fillets in the cornflour sifted with smoked paprika and seasoning.
Shake off excess cornflour and set the fish aside in a single layer.
Put 1 tbsp of the olive oil, the orange zest and juice and the harissa paste into a small bowl, and whisk together.
Heat a frying pan with remaining olive oil until very hot.
Fry the fish fillets for 5 mins, first on the skin side, then on the flesh side.
When the fish is nearly cooked – it should look firm – pour over the orange and harissa glaze, bring to the boil and allow the liquid to bubble until sticky.
Sprinkle over the pine nuts and coriander.
