Grilled mackerel

From Cookipedia

As mackerel is quite an oily fish, it's nice to have clean citrus flavours to cut the oil. This would be nice with a dollop of horseradish cream and a grapefruit salsa.

Your fishmonger will fillet mackerel if you ask.

Chef's notes

Don't be tempted to add salt as processed mackerel can be quite salty already.
