Availability: In stock

£5.95

Wild mackerel sustainably line-caught off the coasts of Devon and Cornwall. With their sleek shape and iridescently striped flanks, mackerel are instantly recognisable. The flesh is firm, deeply flavoursome and rich in Omega-3 oils. We think fish tastes best served on the bone when possible, so we’ve cleaned and gutted them, but left them whole for you to grill, roast or BBQ. Serves 2. There are 2 or 4 whole mackerel per pack.

Delivered in insulated packaging to keep cool on your doorstep. Minimum meat & fish order £15 to cover the cost of the packaging.

Don’t miss our wild mackerel. We buy from small local fishermen, so supplies are limited. It will be available for deliveries from 18th February, while stocks last.

Cooking

Trim the fins and tail. Cut 3-4 diagonal slashes into each side of the fish to allow the heat to penetrate. Oil and season well on both sides. Stuff the cavity with some aromatic lemon, herbs and bay. Bake in the oven at 200˚C/Gas 6 for about 15 mins, or until the flesh pulls easily away from the bone. You can remove the head before cooking if you like.

Storage

Keep in the fridge below 5˚C. Pre-frozen, not suitable for home freezing.

We guarantee that your fish order will have at least 5 days before its expiry date, including the day of your delivery.

About our fish

Our very limited range of seafood is based on what our research shows to be fishable in an ethical and sustainable way. We only support small-scale, non-industrial fishers local to us (mostly in Devon and Cornwall). The catch is always line-caught by day boats under 10 metres long, and we have full traceability from the boat to your door.

All catches are iced at sea, then expertly prepared, packed and blast frozen within 24 hours. Freezing the fish ensures it is fresh at the point of eating; fish from industrial-scale boats may have a much longer journey before it is frozen. Freezing the fish enables us to catch them when they are prevalent in our local seas and balance supply and demand (e.g. you can still get fish if the boats can’t get out in rough weather). Our blind taste tests found no impact from freezing on flavour or texture. For more info, please see our fish manifesto and FAQs.
