Pan Fried Oregano Spiced Mackerel with Tomato & Avocado Salsa

This oregano spiced mackerel and avocado salsa is packed with goodness while providing an indulgent treat for the taste buds. The zesty marinade is easy to whip up – just blend our aromatic dried oregano with a few other tasty ingredients including fresh parsley, garlicky spring onions, zingy lime juice and a sprinkling of fiery chilli. These bold flavours work beautifully with the mackerel as it’s a fairly meaty fish that won’t be overpowered. Meanwhile, the salsa brings a perfectly refreshing contrast to the smoky fish, with creamy chunks of avocado, plump tomatoes and citrusy fresh coriander. Fresh and spicy, sweet and zesty, this dish is ideal for impressing friends and family at your next summer get-together.
