Mackerel is a cheap and underrated fish. If you like spicy food, this one is for you. It's dead simple and really quick. Serve this to your dinner guests (if they don't mind whole fish), as this is really impressive and they will think you have been in the kitchen for ages... Let them open their individual parcels at the table. All the flavours will stream into their nose...lovely. I always serve some Raita with it because this cools the spicy fish. You may use the Simple Raita below (at the end of the directions) or use your own. Also nice with it is the Beetroot Relish (also below) or any kind of salad. I think some plain rice would be nice as well. Recipe source is the 'Good Food' magazine (March 04).
This recipe comes from Goa, India. Goan recipes are considered to be the best when it comes to FISH. No wonder this one won R.O. 20 in Thursday magazine's contest;) It was submitted by Shailaja U. Surlakar. Enjoy!
Copied from Yasuko's Homecooking, a website with Japanese recipes. http://www.nsknet.or.jp/--chrkaji/yasuko/index_e.html Haven't tried it yet, but I love miso. I'm going to probably try salmon with the recipe.
If you find the regular fish and chip recipe greasy, too fattening and not exciting any more try my version. Yummy, spicy and not as fatty. When it come to cooking, I like it as it is full of flavours and SPICE.
Mackerel is one of the easiest fish for us to catch here in Maine so I am always on the lookout for a new recipe. This is one I want to try soon. The recipe calls for 2 2-lb mackerel, but we usually catch smaller ones. I think just adjusting the baking time would allow for me to use smaller fish.
