Wondering what to do with mackerel fish to change a bit? We can easily preserve mackerel at home to have a fish fillet full of flavor and super healthy, that stores easily in the fridge up to a week. Just like a canned mackerel, but make it more fresh and healthy!
An easy way to have a main protein to pair with a side veggies or in a salad; but also a delicious adding to a tomato sauce to your pasta.
Mackerels are often considered a low-value sea food alternative, yet it’s a great fish with a high nutritional profile. You just need to know how to cook it well!
Once you have understood how to preserve your mackerel fillets, you can add it to a salad bowl, with some capers and lemon slices. But salad is just an option: you could eat it on a bruschetta, as pasta sauce or straight from the casserole!
You can also make preserve jar to store it in your pantry or make a gift to someone.

Hi. How long will the mackerel keep in the jar /fridge, or is it possible to freeze it? Thanks.
If you cover them with a good amount of oil, they can stay in a sealed jar in the fridge for a whole week. But I never tried to freeze them. Let me know if you try!
