What Started it all:
Mackerel, Zucchini, peanut butter, skillet

(Stares intensely at the mackerel fillets)


  • 4 mackerel fillets
  • 2 zucchinis, sliced
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Black pepper


  1. Preheat the skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Season the mackerel fillets with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. Drizzle olive oil in the skillet and place the mackerel fillets skin side down. Cook for 4-5 minutes until the skin is crispy, then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. In a separate pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat and add the sliced zucchinis. Cook for 3-4 minutes until they are tender and slightly golden.
  5. In a small saucepan, gently heat the peanut butter with a splash of water, stirring until it forms a smooth sauce.
  6. Plate the grilled mackerel and zucchini, then drizzle the peanut butter sauce over the top.
