NEED TO KNOW
Mackerel is the perfect partner for earthy vegetables like beetroot, which bring out the sea salt flavour of this particular fish.
Grill mackerel fillets before placing them atop beetroot and horseradish pearl barley risotto or learn to cook a restaurant-style grilled mackerel with pickled beetroot and baked garlic dish. Elsewhere, there’s a reason crispy tandoori mackerel is one of our favourites this month – it tastes just as good as it looks.
Mackerel is a relatively easy fish to fillet, but if you prefer to buy your fish ready-prepared Spinneys fishmongers are happy to do it for you.
