• 2 whole (or 4 fillets) mackerel
  • oil
  • 4 tbsp white miso
  • 2 tsp golden caster sugar
  • 2 tsp mirin
  • 150g brown rice
  • 1cm piece ginger, grated
  • 1 red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped


  • STEP 1

    If using whole fish, cut the fillets away from the fish and pull out any fine bones you can see. Oil the fillets and lay them skin-side down on tray. Mix the miso, sugar and mirin together and brush the mixture all over the flesh. Leave to marinate while you cook the rice.

  • STEP 2

    Cook the brown rice. Put the ginger, chilli and spring onion in a small jug and add a little oil. Once the rice is cooked tip it into a bowl and stir through the ginger mixture and season well.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the grill to high and grill the mackerel for about 5 minutes, or until the top browns and the fish cooks through. Serve with the rice.
