  3. Place the coarsely chopped fresh spinach, cashew nuts, Parmesan, clove of garlic cut into pieces, a pinch of salt, pepper and olive oil in a food processor.
  4. Blend. Do not blend for too long, there should still be a few pieces of cashew nuts.
  5. Pour the mixture into a bowl and set aside.
  6. Zest a lemon onto the ricotta. Combine.
  7. Season with salt and pepper. Add a few chopped basil leaves. Combine.
  8. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin. Add flour so that it does not stick.
  9. Heat a little olive small in a frying pan.
  10. When the pan is hot, cook the dough for about 2 minutes on each side, it should be golden brown.
  11. Assembling the flatbread: spread with the ricotta, lemon zest and basil mixture, distribute the flaked mackerel fillets, drizzle with several spoonfuls of pesto and sprinkle with some chopped cashew nuts.
