Ingredients
Ingredients
1 small red onion, finely chopped
juice half lime
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
half level tsp cumin
pinch chilli powder
3-4 plums, stoned and chopped
8-10 fresh ripe cherry tomatoes, chopped
1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
4 mackerel fillets
4 rotis or wholemeal tortillas
100g mixed salad leaves
Method
  1. Add the onion, lime juice, olive oil, cumin and chilli powder to a bowl, and mix well.
  2. Mix in the plums, tomatoes and coriander. Cover and set aside for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make three slits across the skin of each mackerel fillet.
  4. Grill or barbecue each mackerel fillet skin side up under a grill, or skin side down on a barbecue, for around 4 minutes. This should be enough to cook the fillet right through but if not, turn it over and cook it for 1 minute on the flesh side too.
  5. After warming the tortilla, add some salad leaves and a mackerel fillet. Top it with a dessertspoon of salsa and roll up.
  6. Serve the rest of the salsa on the side.
Chefs tips
  • Salsa works well with grilled tuna, salmon or prawns or with pork steaks.
  • Mackerel are a great source of Omega 3s, as well as vitamin D.
  • If taking for a picnic, cover the wrap with greaseproof paper and twist each end.
