  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 limes, zest and juice

  • Slash the mackerel 6 times with a sharp knife, then place in a dish and brush with the oil. Mix the ginger, garlic, parsley, soy, honey, lime zest and juice in a bowl, then liberally slather all over the mackerel, pushing into the slits and belly cavity. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 20 mins.
