|Tasty mackerel you can eat for lunch or dinner.|
My dad caught this mackerel but if you buy it from the supermarket try and get it fresh as it really does taste better. It's really simple to cook and there are a thousand and one ways you can cook it but I prefer it done nice and simple; as fresh mackerel is jammed pack of it's own glorious flavours!
First you have to gut the fish (unless you bought it already gutted). It can be quite tricky and there are many different techniques but I find this link extremely helpful... (if you're squeamish or easily offended then you probably shouldn't watch this video)
I personally prefer to keep the head on but it's totally up to you! After gutting the mackerel simply place on a baking tray with a splash of olive oil, a drizzle of lemon and a sprinkle of dried parsley.
I always eat it with salad and boiled potatoes but you can serve it with whatever you fancy or as a snack on it's own!
