Hello, my name is Matt, and I cannot plate food. There, I got that out. Thanks for listening.
As any reader of this blog knows, I eat a lot of seafood. Some I tire of, and have to change up. Others are always a complete joy to eat on a regular basis. A wonderful grilled mackerel certainly falls into the later (and in case you wonder, hallibut certainly falls into the first).. There is something about the buttery white flesh, and the ever-so thin crispy skin that gets me everytime. I haven’t even started to mention the flavor yet… Pure sea. Some say fishy.. Codswallop to that I say. You get a nice fresh (or really fresh frozen one.. more on that later) mackerel, and it shouldn’t smell fishy. Did I also happen to mention the price of them here in Seattle? Cheap as chips – as far as fish goes anyhow. One mackerel might set me back $6, and is just enough to feed two people. And the final clincher of the deal? It is a really, really healthy fish for you. Very oily, so tons of those good Omega’s. Since they are smaller fish, and relatively fast growing, it has been said that they also rank pretty low on the dirty little polutants side of things too.
