There’s nothing quite like the taste of a cold-smoked mackerel. Cured with a light salt and sugar cure, accentuated with a dark honey cure, I think you’ll find it hard to resist.
Mackerel is a good source of a number of vitamins and minerals including; vitamin A, E, B6, D, B12, and zinc. Zinc can help with brain function as well as the immune system. They are also a good source of Omega 3 oils, which can prevent inflammation of blood vessels. This can help to keep you looking and feeling young and healthy. Mackerel is also a good source of protein with more than 25% of our daily recommended amount, helping to keep us lean and healthy.
You can prepare our smoked mackerel fillets in a variety of ways, pan sear, shallow fry or baked. Baked mackerel fillets are quick to prepare and are suitable for anyone following a low-fat diet since there is no oil added during cooking. All you have to do is place the mackerel fillets in the oven and bake them on moderate heat until cooked through approximately 25 minutes. Meanwhile, cook any vegetables that you’d like to serve with it in a frying pan with a little olive oil, season the vegetables as you go along. Try serving with creamed horseradish sauce and Sauvignon Blanc or Picpoul de Pinet and you are sure to be pleased with the results.
