Again this is a cracking starter that can be prepared in advance, saving stress and time 


400g of fresh mackerel fillets 

The juice and zest of 4 limes 

2 teaspoon of pink peppercorns 

1 inch piece of fresh ginger, finely grated 

Good pinch of salt 

Good pinch of caster sugar 


Using an extremely sharp knife, carefully slice the mackerel fillets at right angles towards the tail

Place on plates and chill for 30 minutes 

Mix all the other ingredients together 

Now dip each piece of mackerel into the marinade and arrange neatly onto plates 

Spoon over the remaining marinade and serve immediately
