Too many bones.
Lots of bones. Not happy with this product.
BEWARE... BONES, BONES, BONES
Inedible as there were so many large bones in it, won't be buying ever again!
Lovely fillets, beautifully smoked & peppered!
Beautiful fillets with just the right amount of smokiness and peppercorns. Great with a salad & potatoes (though I’ve even had them as a sandwich between two slices of bread!!) My only ‘complaint’ with my most recent purchase was that there seemed to me more bones than usual, but not enough to spoil my meal. A very worthwhile purchase.
2 day use by date when it says +1 week on webpage
I was delivered a pack with a two day use by date when on the website it says +1 week. I went to use them yesterday and realised they were 4 days over their date. Had to throw them away so a total waste of money.
I made a pate with this using horeseradish, Dijon mustard, creme fraiche and lemon juice and black pepper. Once I'd skinnedit , mashed with a fork to keep some texture and added everything else it made a tidy amount. Enough for 2 to eat straight away and a pot for the freezer. Very tasty and bone free. Looks like a favourite.
Succulent fillet full of flavour and many surprises 10000000000000/10 Thanks for allowing me to taste that sensation. COVID free

Do not buy, Awful
Not a very nice Mackerel Fillets, they are naturally an oily fish but when the package was opened the oil dripped out of it, this would not of come from the fish itself. Also there was more bones than I had ever had in a Mackerel Fillet, needs to be made more clear that no attempt to remove bones has taken place
way too much pepper
I buy smoked mackerel, including versions with peppercorns regularly. This one has just got about 3 times more on it that needed - I ended up having to scrape excess off with a knife (not an easy task) to make it somewhat edible and near the normal amount. Maybe I just got an unusual pack, but rather than like the picutre above it being 'dotted' the whole surface was densely and entirely covered with small peppercorns ie it was like a breadcrumb coating except peppercorns. If that wasn't a one off reduce the pepper significantly - it must cost a fortune anyway - and offer ones that are 'a mixture' of peppered and non-pepperd so you can at least then have mouthfuls of the two together and balance it out!
Watch out - bones!
Be careful and check for bones before you accidentally swallow one! Each fillet had between 5 and 8 bones in, some big ones too. Shame, because the fish is delicious. But this has put me off buying again. Sainsbury’s ones don’t seem to have bones so I’ll buy mackerel from them in future.
