Cornish Mackerel and New Potato Bake

Serves: 4

You will need

4 Cornish mackerel fillets
1 large aubergine, thinly sliced
600g Cornish New Potatoes
100g breadcrumbs
2-3 tbsp olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper

For the sauce

8 tbsp of Cornish clotted cream
4 tsp English mustard
2 eggs, beaten
4 tbsp cheddar cheese, grated
2 tsp oregano
3 tbsp olive oil

To serve

A handful of fresh parsley, chopped
Wedges of fresh lemon
Your choice of green veg or salad


1 Preheat the oven to 200oC (fan 180oC). Give the potatoes a wash and then simmer them in salted water for 7 minutes and drain.

2 Meanwhile, fry the fish gently in a little olive oil, skin down, then place in a medium-sized baking dish. Fry the aubergine slices in the same pan, adding more oil if needed, allowing the fish flavours to soak into them.

3 Layer the fried aubergine slices on top of the fish. Slice the potatoes and layer on top of the aubergines.

4 Whisk all the ingredients for the sauce together and pour generously over the fish mixture. Scatter the breadcrumbs over the top and place in the oven.

5 Bake for 15–20 minutes or until the breadcrumbs have gone golden and crispy.

6 Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve with a wedge of lemon and your choice of green veg or salad.
