Healthy and delicious, try our favourite mackerel recipes
Make one of our mackerel recipes your dish of the day!
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.
