Grilled Maasbanker with Salsa Verde

I’d heard of horse mackerel, or locally known as maasbanker, before but had never sampled them for myself. Fortuitously I stumbled upon some and immediately bought a few. Here they are prepared very simply with some fresh herbs, chilles, and lemon.

Author's Notes

The Art Deco-striped Atlantic mackerel is similar in texture and taste and often more readily available, as are frozen whole sardines. Look in the freezer section of your local supermarket or pop over to a reputable fishmonger and see what takes your fancy.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Using a sharp knife or mezzaluna, finely chop the Fresh Rosemary (3/4 cup) and Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley (1/2 cup) and add to a mixing bowl. Finely chop the Capers (1 Tbsp), Green Chili Peppers (2), and Garlic (2 cloves) and add to the herbs.
step 2
Add the Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1/2 cup) and zest and juice of the Lemon (1). Combine the salsa verde, adding more olive oil if necessary and season with Coarse Sea Salt (to taste) and Coarse Black Pepper (to taste).
step 3
Arrange the cleaned maasbanker in a large dish and spoon a little of the salsa verde over, being sure to coat each fish.
step 4
Oil a grid and grill the Horse Mackerel (15) over medium coals for about 3–4 minutes per side, using a small brush or sprig of rosemary to baste the cavity of each fish with salsa verde.
