smoked mackerel

Recommended Posts

I am trying to include some more fatty fish in my diet, but I don't really like fish that much. Now I am eating smoked salmon and i like it just a bit expensive to eat every day. Has anyone seen something like smoked mackerel. We had that back in the Netherlands and I liked it. 

 

An other question, i bought salmon trout in the Makro... but i googled a bit and have never been able to find salmon trout.. could it be a con that it is just trout ?

good idea, there's many kinds of fish in various glass cans,

meant to be eaten either on hard bread or with boiled potatoes,

should look like these

Makro has plenty of Mackerel ,not smoked but,they have it from

Japan or Norway ,the Norwegian is better,you could get some of

that Liquid smoke,little bottles they sell in supermarkets.

 

Don't advise eating those small tins of local sardines,mackerel,as

i read a report from Indonesia the other day,where they tested 65

brands of tinned fish and all but 6 contained thread worms (live).

There are several 'how to' videos on youtube that you may find useful Rob, including a DIY smoker made from a cardboard box. Another suggestion would be to checkout 'Samui Smokehouse' on FB to see if they deliver off the island.

Yes I found the Mackerel in the Makro most are in tomato sauce and stuff. I am trying to have as little sugar as possible tomato sauce is full of it plus I am not a real fish person but smoked Mackerel i could eat. I know I am a hard eater.

Thanks I will look into it, just trying to improve my diet a bit and tough you can (and I do) eat fish oil capsules it is said its better when it comes directly from the fish. My problem is just that I am a bit picky when it comes to fish. (cod, salmon, smoked mackerel, some flat fish but that is about it.. sardines tried it... did not really like it, oh yes I do eat tuna but its not considered a fatty fish)

Cat food dude. Not for me.

 

I buy frozen salmon and eat that. Works out inexpensive like that.

 

Salmon, mushrooms and greens. Butter , cream, salt and pepper.

tesco has frozen salmon steaks and fillets...I usually steam some frozen dumplings then toss a fillet on top, cover and turn off the heat and ready in a few minutes...quite nice but I always preferred salmon to mackerel and plenty oily...

 

dumpling dipping sauce with soy sauce, rice vinegar and mirin...some folks like to add a bit of sugar...

I meant frozen Mackerel,its not expensive,but you would have to prepare it yourself.

but that's not difficult,and at least you will know what your eating.

Tops sometimes has Waitrose kippers (frozen). I think they are an oily fish.
