  3. Remove the mackerel from the pan and put it on a clean plate until needed later. Pour another splash of oil in the same pan you cooked the fish in (don’t get rid of the juices and browned bits in the pan). Place the pan over medium-high heat and add the red curry paste once the oil is hot.

Check the seasoning of the curry and add extra pepper, salt or sugar to taste if necessary. Scoop the cooked fish onto plates, drizzle with the rest of the red curry sauce and serve hot.
