  • Place the onion, green tomato, piparra chillis and a spoonful of the pickle they came in into a bowl. Add salt, pepper and olive oil. Mix together and put to one side.
  • To plate, create a base with the blended sauce. Place the skrei fillets on top and decorate with the pickle mixture and slices of crisp, fried iberian ham.
