Recipe: Spiced Mackerel with Fennel Slaw
We always enjoying the abundance of fresh mackerel during the summer months when it is reasonably priced and readily available.
This mackerel recipe includes some interesting flavours for a light and healthy meal which is good any day of the week.
Fennel is one of our favourite vegetables with its fresh aniseed flavour and, in our opinion, so much nicer than cabbage in a slaw.
Although we have little success in growing bulb fennel, we have no trouble with herb fennel. As well as the leaves, the flowers are very edible and release an intense burst of aniseed flavour in the mouth – something to try, if you haven’t already.
If you want to make a more substantial meal, simply serve with some boiled new potatoes or some buttered crusty bread.
