I love smoked mackerel and eat it at home about once a week.
We usually have it as is with just some cracked black pepper or sometimes I buy those fillets with the dill.
Since we eat it so often I was thinking of branching out and trying some recipes using smoked mackerel as an ingredient.
I searched the boards and there wasn't much.
Does anyone have any good smoked mackerel recipes...of any sort, we aren't picky eaters!
Well, there's Finnian Haddie -- a very traditional dish for smoked fish. It's intended for smoked haddock (thus "Haddie"), but I'd imagine that smoked mackerel would be good as well. Mackerel's oily nature seems like it would be a natural in this strongly flavored dish.
mix it with some cream and cream cheese and make pate.
sautee with olive oil, tomatoes and garlic and serve over a curly pasta like cut fusilli
mix into scrambled eggs.
have it broiled on baguettes with mustard and sliced granny smith apples
incorporate it into a watercress and tangerine salad, with red onions, walnuts and a mustardy vinaigrette.
I made a smoked fish stew using a can of kippers once and it turned out very tasty. Basically it was just the same recipe as Manhatten style clam chowder, but used the smoked fish instead of clams.
