Fried mackerel is the easiest fish recipe you’ll make. It’s easy, fast and so tasty. But not only easy to make and taste great the Mackerel is one of the healthiest fish you’ll find.

The Mackerel we are making here is not the king Mackerel (which is loaded with mercury and not a good choice), but the small fish.


The small Mackerel from the family of Scombridae, is small oily fish. Some say it tastes a little like Tuna. You can find the Mackerel in cans too but this fried Mackerel recipe is made from fresh fish.

Health benefits of Mackerel:

  1. Rich in protein
  2. Rich in Omega 3 fatty acids
  3. Great source Vitamin B-12
  4. Mackerel has Vitamin D a crucial vitamin for our body
  5. Mackerel also provides niacin, iron, vitamin B6, riboflavin, magnesium, phosphorus, folate, and selenium.
  6. Low in Mercury

Eating Mackerel may improve heart health, reduce the risk of diabetes 2, help prevent anemia, and Reduce the Risk of Age-Related Cognitive Decline.


Try the lightly fried mackerel it’s not only tasty it’s also healthy. If your fish monger will clean your Mackerel and debone it you can use it to make the great fish kebab recipe.
