Grilled mackerel tosted irish seaweed 2 recipe

RECIPE OVERVIEW

There's no need for salt in this dish, as the toasted Irish seaweed, bacon and sherry vinegar will bring out the flavour of the mackerel. Seaweed can act as a great replacement for salt if you are trying to cut back. 

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • 2 slices Dried Dillisk Seaweed
    (use 1 or 2 slices)
