  1. Roast the red pepper as shown here , leave in a Lock and Lock style box for 10 minutes then rub some off the blackened skin, de-seed it and chop into small squares.
  2. Cook the pasta in fast boiling water as instructed on the packet. About 7 minutes should do. (we have pasta cooking times for most pasta types)
  3. Drain the pasta once cooked, add a tiny splash of olive oil and mix to stop it sticking together and leave in the sieve to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Using a sharp knife over the serving bowl so you can save the juice, carefully cut the skin away from the orange then cut into small bite-sized pieces
  5. Remove the skin from the mackerel, check for any pin-bones, add them to the serving bowl. Add the mayonnaise and another splash of olive oil, salt and pepper and mash together with a fork.
  6. Chop the spring onions into rings and wash the tomatoes - slice large ones.
  7. Add the pasta and mix everything together really well.
