Chop two of the gherkins and make the others into fans for the garnish.
Peel, core and chop the apples and fry them with the celery in the fat in a small pan until the apple is pulpy.
Stir in the chopped gherkins, thyme, vinegar, breadcrumbs and seasoning and mix well.
Put the fish fillets on a board and spread the stuffing over them, then fold them in half and put them in a greased ovenproof dish that will fit into the pressure cooker.
Put the trivet in the pressure cooker, pour in 300 ml (1/2 pint) water and stand the fish on the trivet.
Put on the lid and bring to high (15 lb) pressure.
Cook for 5 minutes.
Reduce pressure quickly.
Meanwhile heat the apple juice in a pan.
Blend the arrowroot and lemon juice and pour in a little of the hot apple juice.
Add mixture to the pan and reheat, stirring until it thickens and boils.
Serve the mackerel with a little of the sauce spooned over it, garnish with the gherkin fans and serve the rest of the sauce separately.
