Consumed all over the world, mackerel is an oily fish that’s rich in health-boosting omega-3 fatty acids.
Mackerel has a reputation for having a particularly pungent, fishy aroma.
It’s flesh can spoil quickly so was and still is often preserved by traditional salting, curing, and smoking processes.
Now, of course, refrigerators can keep mackerel’s odour at bay for longer, but it’s still best to eat our fresh mackerel within 24 hrs of receiving your order.
How to Cook
Mackerel fillets are quick to cook and go well with earthy flavours.
Fresh mackerel and beetroot make a particularly elegant couple.
The fish’s distinct markings and the vibrant hues of finely sliced heritage beetroot are a feast for the eyes. Adding an acidic element such as a finely sliced apple creates a refreshing balance.
What to Drink
Like most oily fish, fuller-bodied white wines are a great match for mackerel.
However, the rich fattiness of mackerel’s flesh makes it entirely possible to pair it with a lighter red wine such as a chilled Beaujolais.
