Mackerel is an oily fish rich in healthy Omega 3. Its eating qualities are legendary and ought to cost three times as much but fortunately, it's prolific. You’ll find the fillets here but you should give the whole fish a try. Cooking fish whole keeps it moist and in the case of mackerel ensures you get the super-oil-rich belly flesh (it tends not to be included on the fillet). The flesh slides readily off the bone and with a lifetime's practice, you’ll be able to eat an entire mackerel without getting a single bone in your mouth.  If you're wondering where to start, just slice up some lemon and fresh herbs such as thyme or oregano and stuff them into the belly cavity. Then wrap in foil and bake in the oven for about 18 minutes at 180C. There are more cooking ideas in our recipes link.
