Recipe: DIY Mackerel Ceviche with Rocket

If you’ve never tried ceviche before, then what better way to start by doing it yourself! Contrary to popular belief, it's easy to do. The fish cooks in the chemicals from the acid, so is not ‘raw’ like sushi. Even still, grab yourself super fresh mackerel for this one, it will make all the difference.

DIY Mackerel Ceviche Ingredients:

  • 2 large mackerel fillets
  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • A handful fresh rocket

DIY Mackerel Ceviche How To:

Slice the mackerel into thin strips. Place in a resealable plastic bag

Toss in the lime juice, chilli, spring onion and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, and shake well. Allow to stand for 10 minutes.

Remove from the bag and serve with plenty of fresh rocket.

How was your experience of ceviche? Would you do it again?

For the tuna

  • 1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 3cm fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • Juice ½ lime
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper

For the salad

  • 1 large handful Asian greens, i.e. rocket / mizuna
  • 100g fine green beans
  • 1 small, ripe mango, peeled and chopped into cubes
  • 8 – 10 small cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Small handful fresh coriander, torn

Tuna and Mango Salad How To:

In a small bowl, combine all the marinade ingredients. Rub into the tuna steaks, and leave to marinade for at least half an hour.

Meanwhile, toss together all the salad ingredients and divide into two salad bowls.

Heat a griddle to a very high heat. Drizzle with a little olive oil, wait until it starts to smoke, then throw the tuna steaks on. Flash fry for 1 minute each side, so still pink in the middle. Dice and divide into the two salad bowls.
