Thomasina Miers’ recipe for caesar salad with grilled mackerel


This easy twist on the classic salad is all about summer freshness


It is little known that the caesar salad, that brasserie mainstay, is a wholeheartedly Mexican affair. It was invented by a chef called Caesar Cardini and, unlike most of Mexico’s culinary gems, it quickly became one of the country’s most famous exports – although apparently the original recipe didn’t call for anchovies (I know!). Here is a version inspired by a delicious trip to a restaurant called Magpie in London. For recipe follow this link.
