Boil the green beans for 3 mins, then drain and set aside.

Mix the gooseberries with the sugar and 2 tbsp water in a small pan. Heat gently for 3-4 mins until softened but still holding their shape.

Make 4 slashes in the skin of the mackerel with a knife. Brush all over with harissa; season with a little salt.

Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Fry the courgettes for 3 mins until golden; remove from the pan. Add the mackerel, skin-side down; fry for 3 mins until crisp. Flip and cook for a further 1 min until cooked.

Meanwhile, mix the dressing ingredients together and season with salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar. Arrange the salad leaves, dill, radishes, beans and courgettes on a platter and lay the mackerel on top.
Scatter over the gooseberries and drizzle over the dressing.
