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.
