About this recipe: This is a very easy and fast recipe for a delicious dinner, healthy too. Fish is one of the best protein sources. It's on the budget too.
I'm quite new to cooking but felt as though I could manage this. Unfortunately, the fish counter where I purchased the mackerel had only filleted the fish, and so the small bones were still present in some parts of the flesh. My partner said that with a little skill, in fine-dining restaurants, chefs remove these annoying bones with a pair of tweezers! I shall spend the time next time I attempt this. Also, the "50g" and "100g" of olive oil and white wine respectively confused me. I assumed it was a mistake for "ml" and therefore used the latter measurement. My partner said the amount of liquid still in the tin after cooking with these amounts was either correct or I should have measured in grams. Anyway, not my best attempt but will try again! - 10 Apr 2012

If you like mackerel you'll like this! I love it, my husband doesn't. He thought it was ok, I thought it was fabulous. It's all about taste. The vegetables were perfect and so was the fish. I just did a few new potatoes to go with it. All I did different was to par-cook the carrots in the microwave (2 mins on high in a bit of water). Put all the veg on the bottom of a dish lay the mackerel on top (having taken out bones with tweezers) and doused with a bit of white wine. Then put tomatoes on top of fish and sprinkled a bit of olive oil. Added the walnuts and parsley as recipe. Served with a bit of lemon. - 14 Jun 2015
