Great Boat Food

With a few carefully selected good quality ingredients and a little bit of effort, you can ‘throw together’ beautiful things in your galley.

We’ve teamed up with Lisa Reilly of RealFood, to offer inspiration and guidance for livening up your cooking onboard. Check out Lisa’s recipes below and you’ll  soon be impressing fellow crew members with some seriously delicious food.

Grilled Mackerel with Cumin and Harissa

You will need:

• 4 Mackerel cleaned (Choose fish according to the size of the grill in your galley if using)
• 1 teaspoon of Belazu rose harissa (If you can’t find this particular brand then any supermarket harissa will also work)
• 4 garlic cloves crushed
• 4 tbsp of ground cumin
• 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
• Salt
• Lemon wedges


One. Make 2 diagonal cuts across each side of the fish.

Two. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl (except lemon wedges) and smear all over the mackerel. Set aside for about an hour, turning occasionally.

Three. When you are ready to eat either get that BBQ sizzling or if you are using the grill in your galley, make sure you have it as hot as it can possibly be. Grill the fish for 5-7 minutes on each side. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.

Serves Four.

Having spent years cooking the food I love in the superyacht industry, I wanted to help more boaters create top quality, fresh cuisine. You can choose between cooking the receipes I have created or ordering from my handmade menu range.

My concept is to move away from the sandwich and crisps lunch. I’m talking about homemade, handmade, locally sourced, seasonal food.
