I love mackerel pate on toast for lunch.
We regularly have mackerel risotto, kedgeree, pasta bake or fish cakes

God I love mackerel. I'm not sophisticated so would just grill the fillets and serve with astringent stuff like chopped tomatoes and salad or make or spinach with lots of herbs and vinaigrette, maybe rice or boiled potatoes. I wouldn't personally fry it or have mayonnaise with it as it's so oily.

Kale not make!

We have smoked mackerel salad: salad leaves, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, hard boiled eggs, red onion.... delicious with an olive oil and balsamic dressing,

I like to bake it in foil, with some (sauted) garlic and ginger and a bit of soy sauce.

Dd likes it mashed with mayo and put in a wrap with sweetcorn, cucumber and chopped pepper.

Dp thinks its the devils food.

I make a spicy tomato sauce and flake mackerel into it, serve with tagliatelle.

Grilled and served with plain rice, veg and sweet chilli sauce. Delicious quick meal.
