This recipe is from Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking. Serves 2, or 4 as a starter
First, line a grill tray with foil and brush it with oil.
Brush each frozen mackerel fillet lightly with oil and season, then arrange them (skin side up) on the foil. Place the tray about 15cm from the heat and time them for 6 minutes. After that, turn them over and grill for another 6 minutes or until they are tinged golden and the fish is cooked through.
For the salsa verde, simply place all the ingredients in a mini-chopper and pulsechop till you have a chunky sauce. Serve the grilled fillets with the salsa verde spooned over.
Pre-heat the grill to its highest setting
