  1. Place the oatmeal on a plate with the lemon zest and a little seasoning. Combine lightly. Place the flour on another plate and the egg in a shallow bowl. Pat the fillets dry using kitchen paper. Dip each fillet first in flour to lightly coat each side, then briefly in the egg. Finally, press into the oatmeal to coat fully on both sides. Heat the oil in a shallow frying pan, then gently fry the fillets for 4-5 minutes on each side until the coating is golden and the flesh is opaque. Serve the mackerel with the remaining lemon cut into wedges, and a fresh salad of watercress and chicory.
