2. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Make small cuts along both sides of the mackerel and season inside and outside. Heat some olive oil in a frying pan until smoking then char each side for a few minutes.
Transfer to a roasting dish and put in the preheated oven.
3. After about 10 minutes take out the fish and paint the sticky sauce across the top. Return to the oven for a further 5 minutes until the sauce looks thick and sticky. Serve immediately.
