Common in all UK waters, mackerel is a magnificent fish, with gorgeous blue-black stripes along its back, and a bright silver underbelly.

It’s a fast, predatory feeder, whose dark, oily meat is rich in Omega 3 and has some of the best flavour money can buy.

Freshly caught and gutted, then placed onto the barbecue as soon as possible, we think mackerel needs little else except a squeeze of lemon and a fair twist of cracked black pepper to be enjoyed at its best.

If you are feeling cheffy however, mackerel fillets love a little bit of acidity, so why not try with a balsamic and gooseberry compote or a salsa verde, for some top notch dining.

 

Facts

One of the best sources of omega 3 fats

Abundant around the Cornish coast and sourced from Cornish fishing ports. Outside of the Cornish Mackerel season, we will source quality mackerel from locations outside of Cornwall instead.

Normally available Jan-Mar and June-Oct

 

The 1kg (net weight) will be made up of multiple fish. We cannot predict what is landed each day, so cannot guarantee the number of fish provided.

Serve barbecued with an acidic punch of sharp fruit compote

Please note that due to market conditions, sometimes dictated by the weather on rare occasions we may have to send you frozen fish, which could arrive partially-defrosted.

Fresh fish is best eaten straight away, or within 3 days.

Store in your refrigerator and pack with ice if possible.

To freeze; place the fish straight in the freezer upon delivery - remember that oily fish does not freeze as well as white fish, so be sure to consume within 2 months.

TIP: Write the date on the packaging before freezing.

Do not re-freeze your fish after defrosting.
