2012/03/01 by Varga László


Ingredients (4 persons):

  • 4-5 whole mackerel fishes
  • 1 lemon’s juice
  • 1/2 lime’s juice
  • 1 bunch of parsley leaves
  • 6 spring onions
  • 4-5 garlic cloves
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-3 smaller branches of  fresh rosemary
  • 5-6 fresh sage leaves
  • 2-3 tablespoons lemon chili sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 500 g canned chickpeas
  • some twine for wrapping the fish

 

Preparation method:

  1. Clean the fishes from their guts, wash them thoroughly outside and inside, extend the abdominal cavity by cutting them up toward their tails, so you can stuff in more filling.
  2. Chop together the green onions, garlic, parsley, sage and rosemary. Add the olive oil, lemon and lime juice, salt and pepper. blend them together.
  3. Soak the twine in some cold water.
  4. Stuff each piece of mackerel with the above mixture, adding a dash chili sauce into them.
  5. Wrap carefully each mackerel with twine to hold the filling inside. Salt the well on the outside.
  6. Let them rest for about 1/2 hour, so the stuffing’s flavors will enter the fish.
  7. Grill the mackerel over medium-low heat, turning once.
  8. Mix the remaining stuffing that remained unused, with the chickpeas.
  9. Serve on a large plate a piece of mackerel, some chickpeas with bits of chives ontop and 2 lemon slices.
