Asian Style Mackerel

2017-08-15-16-19-07I wasn’t sure if I liked mackerel, but I knew that for such a cheap ingredient, it was absolutely teaming with all the things I needed to eat more of, particularly EHA and DHA, vital for supporting brain function. I decided to marinade it in quite a strong sauce just in case, and I was amazed with how tasty it was! So punchy and rich, I am pleased I only had one fillet as two may have been a bit too much for me. I kept the dish light by Continue reading
