  • 2 whole mackerel, filleted
  • 2 heaped tbsp apricot jam
  • 1 or 2 chilies, chopped
  • 500 ml white wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Cooking Directions

    To make the Blan Tjang, blend the apricot jam, chilies, garlic and vinegar together and set to one side. On a pre-heated pan, sear the mackerel fillets on each side and cook for a minute turning over once during cooking. Once cooked remove the mackerel and place on a baking tray.

    Spread the Blan Tjang mix over the mackerel and place under the grill for 4-5 minutes until a nice glaze appears and the fish is just cooked -- don't overcook -- and make sure it's still nice and moist.
