Carefully rinse the mackerel under running water then pat dry with kitchen towel.


Place a heavy-bottomed frying pan over a high heat. When hot, add the butter and when it is melted, place the fillets in, skin side down. Fry for 5 minutes on the skin side, then carefully turn the fillets. Cook for 2-3 minutes, reducing the heat a little to stop the flesh burning.


Toast the bread while the fish is cooking, then spread each slice with half the horseradish. Serve and enjoy.
