Recipe: Mackerel steak with tomato, olive and zucchini sauce
Posted Mar 27 2011 11:36pm
I like to serve this with a starchy vegetable, like sweet potato, sweet corn or potato. Mackerel steak has a very rich flavour, with plenty of natural oils, so you may want to keep your portion size moderate.
Ingredients for each person:
- Fresh mackerel steak
- ¼ brown onion, diced
- 2 tomatoes, diced
- one tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 small zucchini, sliced
- 6 kalamata olives
- Make the sauce first: Saute the onion in a little olive oil, add the tomatoes, tomato paste and zucchini and simmer for 5 minutes or so. Add the olives, and taste test. You may wish to add a little salt or tomato paste. Continue to simmer gently while your fish is cooking.
- Char-grill the mackerel steak; on the bbq is ideal. It will take only about 3 minutes each side.
- Spoon the sauce over the fish to serve.
