It was a fish night in my kitchen:) Today I went to my local fishmonger and picked a fish, which is often underestimated – Mackerel!
Mackerel is an oily fish, high in Omega-3 with full meaty flavour. Besides, it is super cheep and super tasty. Just buy it and boost your health with the amazing benefits of Omega-3.
Blue-Scale Mackerel baked in foil
You will need:
2 whole small mackerels
2 limes, sliced
4 rosemary springs
2 garlic cloves, sliced
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 fennel bulb, sliced
2 celery sticks, sliced into thin stripes
4 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp of chopped parsley, to serve
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Get two pieces of tin foil, each 50 cm long. Pour a couple of lugs of olive oil on each foil square; divide fennel and celery between them. Squeeze a bit of lime juice on top of the vegetables. Rub olive oil all over the fish. Season the fish outside and inside with salt and pepper. Tuck the rosemary, two lime slices and garlic inside each fish cavity. Sprinkle the onion and pour 2 tbsp of balsamic over each fish, alternatively you can use red wine vinegar or apple juice. Wrap the foil loosely around each fish. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Served with baked or boiled potatoes and sprinkled with parsley.
Ps: Omega-3: prevents from heart disease, helps with skin problems and lowers the bad cholesterol.
Enjoy your extra doze of Omega-3!
