Ingredients

  • 50g jumbo porridge oats
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 mackerel fillets
  • 1 med egg, beaten
  • 30g butter
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil

  2. Dip each fish fillet into the beaten egg and then coat with the porridge oats.
  3. Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan and when hot, add the mackerel to the pan, cooking for 2-3 mins on each side, or until crisp all over.
  4. Remove the mackerel fillets from the pan and drain them on absorbent kitchen paper. Serve immediately with lemon wedges to squeeze the juice over the fish.
