holy mackeral




Mackerel, and all I think of is raw oily goodness. Seasoned in all kinds of ways makes the mackerel equally tasty but I like it raw. You can cook the mackerel to perfection but nothing beats its virgin flesh.






Singed with a torch can work too.....

Thats a pretty mackerel! I love it, but not raw.. I have it for lunch almost every day: mackerel in tomatosauce, on crispbread. An omega3 source de luxe!
Would you like a creepy-ish story about mackerel? In North of Norway, while people love fish, many of them don't eat mackerel. One of the reasons was from during the war(WW2), they said that the mackerel fed on drowned german soldiers who went down in ships and planes during battles, and the dark meat in the mackerel comes from that...
Charming story do you think?

Gimme saba good to eat - mackerel is my absolute favorite fish for nigiri sushi! I can't decide which I love more - the shininess of the fresh skin, or that lovely, delicately torched surface. Both!!

This might sound weird but that fish is really pretty! I do not like fish but if I did I have a feeling I would enjoy this:)
