Fresh mackerel is one of those firm favourites in Andalucian
seafood cooking, one reason is that mackerel is very
economical to buy, is very healthy and ultimately delicious
lending itself to many recipes such as stews, Spanish
asado's, poaching, baking, barbequing - the humble mackerel
is quite a versatile fish! For this recipe we have kept
things very simple indeed, baked mackerel can be cooked
indoors or out, the fish is left to its own devices
with only the addition being fresh herbs.
