British mackerel is at its best from April until early October, so now's a brilliant time to tuck in to a delicious mackerel dish.
On the BBQ, in a satisfying salad with new flavours or served up with pasta, mackerel is delicious, healthy, simple to cook and oh-so versatile. The creamy flesh is rich in omega fats while the metallic skin looks fantastic simply pan-fried. That makes our mackerel recipes perfect if you're looking for a nutritious midweek dinner idea.
When shopping for fresh mackerel, look for bright eyes and shiny skin that's firm to touch. Smoked mackerel works just as well in these dishes.
