This baked mackerel dish is a hearty and filling meal that comes together with just 9 simple ingredients. Sauteed leeks and onions are cooked with thinly sliced potatoes, making a bed for the fish to be cooked on. If you want to add extra flavor to the dish, stuff the fish with a mixture of garlic and parsley before baking, if not a simple sprinkle of salt and pepper will do just fine.

Ingredients

  • 1 onion (peeled and julienned)
  • 1 leek (julienned)
  • 2 potatoes (sliced 2 centimeters thick)
  • olive oil
  • 2 mackerel (medium-sized)
  • ground black pepper
  • salt
  • 2 garlic cloves (diced, optional)
  • fresh parsley (diced, optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
  2. Saute the onion and leek in a skillet no more than 2 minutes stirring occasionally.
  3. In an ovenproof dish, make a bed of the sliced potatoes. Cover with the softened onions and leeks. Salt and black pepper to taste, and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Remove the dish from the oven and place on top of the vegetables the mackerel seasoned with salt and black pepper. Bake another 20 to 22 minutes depending on the size of the fish.
  6. As an option, you can lightly saute together diced garlic and parsley and stuff the fish with this mixture before baking it.

I have never been a big fan of mackerel because it is a bit oilier than salmon. I must admit this recipe changed my mind. They don’t specify the amount of olive oil to use, I used about a ¼ cup to make my meal amazing. The fish flavors the potatoes well. It’s a healthy dinner that my husband loves.
