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.
Too many bones.
Tasty but very disappointed as full of bone full of bones,
Delicious, healthy & cheap ;)
Delicious and just the right amount of pepperiness. Lush with mash and green beans, fab in small pieces with mixed rice, peppers & peas or weirdly hubby loves one in a sandwich or roll! Full of the right type of fat and omega 3. Love them.
I bought one of these from Brewery Lane Tesco, Bridgend last week. Had it for my lunch. Although it tasted delicious, but I almost choked on a huge bone. I searched the rest of the fillet and there were 8 large bones!! Needless to say I didn't finish my lunch and the rest went in the recycling!
Healthy and Tasty Mackerels!
Great taste! Good quality mackerel fillets. I like mackerels most not only because they are delicious but also for their great nutrition value. Healthy fat, high protein, and high omega 3 are all good for my brain and heart. Salmons are also great but they are a bit fat for me. I just hope they are less salty! Otherwise they are perfect!
