Grilled mackerel tosted irish seaweed 2 recipe Grilled mackerel tosted irish seaweed 2 recipe

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. 

4 people 10 minutes 5 minutes


  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • 2 slices Dried Dillisk Seaweed (use 1 or 2 slices)
  • 2 - Shallots finely sliced
  • 50 ml Sherry vinegar
  • 8 slices Smoked Streaky Bacon
  • 4 - SuperValu Mackerel Fillets
  • 50 ml Vegetable Oil


1. Preheat the grill to high.

3. Heat the remaining oil in a small frying pan set over a medium heat. Add the sliced shallots and cook until soft, then add the sherry vinegar and remove from the heat.

4. Meanwhile, place the seaweed in a dry pan set over a medium-high heat and toast for a few minutes, then snip into small pieces with kitchen scissors.

5. Place the mackerel on a plate and sprinkle the toasted Irish seaweed on top. Spoon over the shallots and sherry vinegar and finish with the grilled bacon. Serve with a winter salad.
