1
Preheat a water bath to 46°C
2
To prepare the pickling liquor for the tomatoes, place the water, white wine vinegar and sugar in a medium-sized pan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and allow to cool
  • 200g of water
  • 125g of white wine vinegar
  • 100g of sugar
3
Thinly slice the tomatoes to a 2mm thickness, season with salt and place into a kilner jar. Pour the cooled pickling liquor over and close the lid
  • 2g of salt
4
Next, prepare the mackerel. Remove both fillets from the mackerel and remove any bones. Lightly season the fillets, place in a large vacuum bag and fully seal in a chamber sealer. Cook in the water bath for 8–10 minutes
  • 2 whole mackerel
  • salt to season
  • pepper to season
5
For the tomato water, place all of the ingredients except for the xanthan gum into a blender and blitz to lightly crush
  • 1kg plum tomatoes
  • 5g of celery salt
  • 2 drops of Tabasco
  • 200ml of water
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 5g of basil
6
Pass the water through a fine sieve, then through muslin cloth. Once strained, weigh out 500ml of tomato water and whisk in the xanthan gum to thicken. Strain once more to ensure there are no lumps
  • 3.5g of xanthan gum
7
Remove the mackerel from the bag and place onto a wire rack or heatproof surface. Using a blowtorch, colour the skin until charred
8
To plate the dish, place a small amount of the pickled tomatoes in a shallow bowl, place the mackerel on top and pour the tomato water around the mackerel
9
Scatter more of the pickled tomatoes on top of the mackerel, along with broken-up pieces of the burrata cheese. To finish, using a fine grater, generously grate over the cinnamon stick and add a few oyster leaves
  • 1 burrata
  • cinnamon stick
  • basil leaves
