here is another mackerel recipe that is sure to make you happy. This one is deep fried in a light batter. This method gives a crispy outer coating and at the same time seal in the juices of the fish on the inside. It is especially good as a snack while watching tv or as an appetizer to a main course.

Ingredients:

mackerel (preferrably smaller ones 12" and under) cut up into 3 or 4 chunks each
salt
pepper
batter

1. prepare the batter by mixing 1 part water to 1 part all purpose flour. Mix well and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes
2. while letting the batter sit, heat oil in a frying pot (enough to cover the fish you are cooking)to about 350 degrees (guesstimate)
3. take the mackerel chunks and season with salt and pepper to taste
4. dip the mackerel in the batter. make sure you have a thin coating of batter as too much will require you to cook longer and overcook your fish.
5. put fish in hot oil and fry until batter on outside is golden brown and crispy
6. take out and set on paper towels
7. enjoy with some salted peanuts and a nice beer during the game(s).

yes you do.
If you do not eat it fresh, I would recommend to gut them before you store in refrigerator or freeze it.

Another recipe is you deep fry them lightly without batter (like restaurant style) and placed it in grill. If you want, you can rub some lemon or put some ginger garlic sauce and teriyaki sauce (Asian style) on the mackeral as you grill them, this way you can minimze the fishy smell.
