Broiled Atlantic Mackerel



Mackerel is the healthiest of all fatty fish like salmon and sardines because it has the highest Omega-3 content besides of highest amounts of mono-unsaturated fats. And it is delicious.


Atlantic mackerel is my first choice of fish but it is unfortunately not always available. Bought as filets it is prepared in minutes. Its red raw meat cooks white and its characteristic strong flavor makes a most enjoyable fish dinner.
