Mackerel has a strong fish flavor and a texture similar to tuna. It is a flavorful, oily fish that is high in Omega-3 fatty acids. Whole fish is always much more affordable and tastes fantastic. My family adores how few bones there are and how easily the ones that are there can be removed.

Atlantic mackerel, also know as Boston, Norwegian and Scottish mackerel (scomber scombrus) is a shoaling fish found in the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and the North Atlantic. It is a wonderful fighting fish and great fun to catch from the rocks or a boat.
