As Smoked mackerel salad with grapefruit with pasta is Anne's favourite recipe of all time, I thought it would try a variation using new potatoes instead of pasta. It was an absolute success, the grapefruit pairs so well with the mackerel, cutting through what can a rather oily fish.

This recipe is very similar to a basic South American ceviche.
