Not only is a fillet of mackerel very tasty, it’s extremely good for you, because it’s crammed full of essential Omega-3. Our packs contain either 4, 6 or 8 mackerel fillets as most people will want two fillets per serving. We tend to fillet fresh mackerel from either Scotland or Cornwall. Sometimes people have the misconception that mackerel / mackerel fillets have a strong fishy smell. This is because the mackerel they've smelt isn't very fresh. We ensure ours is 'stiff alive' when filleting and the smell is subtle. The flavour is also not as strong with extremely fresh mackerel. Mackerel is a highly versatile fish. We think it's great when marinated and grilled to be used in salads, smoked, cured or even eaten raw as sashimi or sushi. The high oil content gives the mackerel a beautiful taste when eaten raw. We don't pin bone the mackerel fillets so be a little careful when eating them. The pin bones run horizontally down the centre of the fillet.
