You need some very fresh mackerel for this recipe, which is no bad thing. Just make sure those eyes are crystal clear and gleaming. Use fresh sourdough over stale bread if you can – the toast can get a bit too crispy and brittle if the loaf is too old.

1
To begin, take your mackerel fillets and chop them up into a fine dice – make sure to slice through the flesh, rather than mashing it

Add the mackerel to a bowl and add a spritz of lemon juice to just coat the fish, rather than soaking it. Leave to cure in the juice for about 10 minutes
3
Add the shallot, capers, cucumber, parsley and dill and gently mix. Season with cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Place in the fridge and chill for 30 minutes
