Posted on 01 August 2012

After many request for a great mackerel recipe, I thought I would share one of our favorites, that I'm sure you will enjoy. Ingredients Needed: [caption id="attachment_135" align="alignright" width="210"]Grilled Mackerel Grilled Spanish Mackerel Recipe[/caption]
  • 2 tablespoons of Mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons of Italian dressing
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  • A couple fillets of Mackerel with skin still on one side
Step 1.  Turn your grill on and turn the heat up to about 300 degrees.  Take a small piece of aluminum foil, big enough to put your filet in. Lay the fish in the aluminum foil with the skin side facing down. Step 2.  Spread the mayonnaise over the filet and then place a spoonful of the Italian dressing over the mayonnaise.  Squeeze some lemon over the filet and add salt and pepper. Step 3.  Place the fish on to the grill and wait for the fish to flake on the sides.  It should only take about 5 to 7 minutes. Step 4.  Take the fish off the grill and let it cool down for a few minutes.  Then scrape the fish off of the skin and on to your plate. This recipe will make for a quick and easy meal that your friends and family will love.

    You are correct, the quicker you bleed them and get them on ice the better. Soaking the fillets in lemon or milk will help too.

    When people think of mackerel most people think of oily fish and real fishy tasting, but I do have to say this recipe made it taste great. I would say to bleed the fish and keep them on ice the time you are away so they stay the freshest.

    Not everyone likes mackerel, but this recipe even for non-mackerel lovers is still scrumptious. You will not even know that it is mackerel that you’re eating.
