BATTERED MACKEREL WITH MAYO, CHILLI SAUCE AND LIME

This battered mackerel dish comes from Rick’s brand new, The Road to Mexico book. Inspired by his trip to the Nueva fish market in Mexico City, the second-largest fish market in the world, Rick loved how one of the most popular street food dishes was the fillets of sierra, a type of mackerel, so decided he had to create his own version of the dish.

Rick says: “The fillets are deep-fried in beer batter, split open and slathered in mayonnaise, lime salt and chilli sauce. It’s right up there with the grilled mackerel in a baguette with chilli and sumac they serve on the Bosphorus in Istanbul.”

Watch Rick Stein, The Road to Mexico on Tuesday 7th November at 9pm on BBC 2 and discover more of the vibrant dishes from his latest journey to California and Mexico.

Happy cooking!
