A Healthy Mackerel Recipe

The first rule that I always apply to a Mackerel recipe is - only use really fresh fish. Mackerel is one fish which has to be eaten as soon after catching as possible. Check the eyes - they should be bright and clear, the skin should be shiny and moist and the gills should be bright red.
This was exactly how they looked the other day at Marbella market, so I decided to show you this exciting and healthy recipe.

What you'll do to Make this Mackerel Recipe

  1. O.K. In an oven tray big enough for the four fillets - pour a little olive oil and half the breadcrumbs - seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  3. Heat the oven up to 200ºc/400ºf.
