Fresh mackerel rolls

Jack, an elderly man dressed in apron and straw hat, frying thirteen mackerel

If you’re lucky enough to be in Brighton on a sunny summer weekend, such as the glorious one we’ve just had, I heartily recommend you seek out Jack and Linda Mills on the seafront. They are fish smokers by trade, but when he’s not making ‘Brighton smokie’ kippers, Jack mans his grill and fries fresh mackerel, caught and filleted that morning. They’re a scrumptious lunchtime snack in a bread roll – try them with a dash of lemon juice or a smear of mustard.
