Wild Smoked Mackerel Fillets

A rich, delicious fish, perfect for any time of the day - part of our Sustainable Fish range

Swimming in vast shoals all around the coast of Britain, mackerel are torpedo-shaped fish with impossibly silvery skin and rippling mottled stripes. They're an oily fish with softly flaking, creamy flesh that has plenty of flavour. This makes it perfect for smoking: the richness of the flesh balances beautifully with the earthiness of the smoke. Our smoked mackerel fillets are a tremendously versatile staple to have on hand in the freezer, whether for decadent breakfasts or satisfying suppers.

At The Organic Butchery, we champion the most sustainable methods in our farming practice, so of course this had to extend to our fish. All of our sustainable fish is sourced by the Cornish Fish Co: using only the most sustainable methods to manage our marine ecosystems and ensure overfishing does not occur. Just 20 metres from the quayside, their fish is bought directly from local fishermen and processed between 6 & 12 hours of being caught.

While it would seem that mackerel are abundant and plentiful, any species of fish can find itself in a precarious position when fishing becomes too aggressive. To make sure our native mackerel are around for generations to come, at The Organic Butchery we partner with fishermen who are committed to sustainable practices. This means they take only suitably sized fish at appropriate times of the year and always with consideration for the ocean environment.

Smoked mackerel has a robust flavour that really wants to be the star of the show. Serve it simply flaked as part of a mixed deli board with cold meats, strong cheeses and fruity chutneys. Or add it to a crispy seasonal salad with lots of crunchy textures (peppery radishes are especially good) to balance the softness of the mackerel's flesh. Mixed with some white fish, smoked mackerel fillets are a flavoursome addition to fishcakes, and are an excellent choice for homemade sushi. Pair it with hot horseradish in a speedy pâté or enjoy it grilled and served with a sharp gooseberry purée.
