This is very yummy and haws a great flavour. I tend to use dijon mustard just to give it an extra boost. Also, I find fresh lemon juice has the best flavor. If you do not have mackerel, you can use any white fish in it's place.
- 2 lbs mackerel fillets
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch pepper
- 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
- 1⁄8 teaspoon dried dill
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 lemon, sliced
- Bone and fillet fish.
- Rinse under cold water and pat dry.
- Place fillets, skin side down on a greased broiler pan.
- Combine 1 tbsp melted butter, parsley, salt and pepper and brush fish well.
- Broil 2 to 3 inches from heat about 5 minutes. Do not turn.
- Mix remaining butter with mustard, dill and lemon juice.
- Pour over fillets and broil for 5 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
- Serve garnished with lemon slices.
We enjoyed this recipe. It's quite mild-flavoured but but the fish was beautifully moist and easily cooked. Ppersonally I think it needed more mustard...we used spicy brown. It would be great for people recuperating from an illness who can't handle strong flavours. Thanks Alia!
I am sorry I did not enjoy this at all. I found it completly tasteless. Perhaps I needed to add more mustard or butter or salt and pepper. I was quite disappointed with this one.
