This humble Mackerel is a much underrated fish.It is sustainable and cheap as chips.Mackerel is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids,selenium and vitamin b-12.Its moist,its meaty and doesn't fall apart when barbecued or grilled. I had Indian friends visiting from abroad and wanted to shock and delight them with my jazzed up Mackerel..."Mikes Style"!
