Rich in flavour and omega-3!
One of the richest sources of omega-3, mackerel has greyish flesh with a rich flavour, which is best grilled or baked.
Any sauce should be sharp to complement its rich flavour – try gooseberry, sorrel, rhubarb, cranberry, redcurrant or mustard and avoid anything creamy or buttery. Marinating in citrus juices is also good.
