Grilled Mackerel

  1. Mix all the ingredients together and pour over the mackerel to marinate. Cover and chill for 30 mins.

  2. Heat grill and put the mackerel, skin-side up, on a baking sheet lined with foil.

  3. Grill for 5 minutes, then turn and baste with remaining marinade. Grill for 5 minutes more.

Tomato salsa

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a food processor.

  2. Pulse only a few times, just enough to finely dice the ingredients, not enough to purée. If you don't have a food processor, you can finely dice by hand.

  3. Place in a serving bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. If the chilies make the salsa too hot, add some more chopped tomato.

  4. If not hot enough, carefully add a few of the seeds from the chilies, or add a little more ground cumin.

  5. Let sit for an hour for the flavors to combine.

  6. Peel sweet potatoes, wash them twice and boil for 15- 30 minutes

  7. Drain the yam and serve with grilled mackerel and tomato salsa.
