Red cabbage salad
- 60 gr red cabbage

Use the young spinach and pick out the thick stalks. Wash these, as well as the bean sprouts, and place them partly on top of the red cabbage salad.
- 1 to 2 fresh mackerel fillets per person
Cut the middle bones from the fillet and put some salt and pepper on it. BBQ the mackerel at 110 degrees with the lid closed and sprinkle with smoke dust. Oil the skin side of the mackerel and place on the rack of the BBQ. Close the lid and cook the mackerel for about 5 minutes until it turns a little glassy.
Mango and apple
Clean the mango and cut into thin strips. Then also cut the apple into thin strips. Sprinkle the apple with a little lemon juice to prevent discoloration. Mix the thin strips and put a small hand on the mackerel.
Halve the pomegranate and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Then sprinkle these over the plate.
