How to Make It
  1. Mix together the chile, capers, olive oil, and lemon juice in a wide, shallow bowl. Add the mackerel fillets and season well on both sides. Rub the mixture over the fish, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  2. Cook the fish, skin-side down, for 2–3 minutes, or until the skin is golden brown. Turn it gently, brush with the marinade, and cook for another 2–3 minutes. Remove from the heat and divide between four warmed serving plates.
  3. Put the salad ingredients in a serving bowl, toss gently, and serve with the fish, with lemon wedges for squeezing.
