  1. 1

    If necessary, defrost the squid tubes, rinse under water to remove any grit and dry on a cloth. Once cleaned, dice into cubes (about ½ cm thick).

  2. 2

    Chop the mackerel roughly, place into a large bowl and mix with the squid, chopped chives and a good pinch of salt.

  3. 3

    Weigh the mix into 140g balls, about 1cm high, and press in between sheets of square parchment. Set aside in the fridge until needed

  4. 4

    Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Cut the sweet potatoes into chips and cover with the spices, salt and oil in a bowl.

  5. 5

    Place the chips onto a baking tray and into the oven. Cook for 30-40 minutes, shaking the tray at 10 minute intervals.

  6. 6

    When the chips are nearly ready, heat a non-stick frying pan. Once hot, add oil and lightly colour the burgers on both sides. Place onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper, and cook in the oven for 5-6 minutes to cook through.

  7. 7

    Incorporate the mayonnaise with the smoked paprika, season with a little salt and set aside.

  8. 8

    For the samphire, heat a knob of butter in a pan. Once the butter is foaming, drop in the samphire and 2 tbsp of water. Once the water has evaporated, remove the pan from the heat.

  9. 9

    To serve, toast the buns and place a burger in each. Top with some samphire and serve with the sweet potato chips and smoked mayonnaise.
