      This is a delicious recipe although I used talapia - less fat (fewer bones too) than the Mackerel. I also used Cider vinegar vs the Malt vinegar. I fried the onions along with the fish and used dental floss to tie it together and used regular flour to coat the fish. Great tastes great recipe - I will use this again. Chris
