Mackerel is a popular culinary fish. It is inexpensive, but in terms of the amount of nutrients it can even compete with salmon. It is a pity that few people think about this, usually preferring salted or smoked mackerel. But it is these two cooking methods that are considered the least useful. Indeed, in salted or smoked form, this fish is very tasty, but mackerel recipe in the oven is not only tasty, but also healthy. Such a dish can be safely offered even to guests. First, the fish looks very appetizing. Secondly, it has a great taste and contains almost no bones.

We offer an original recipe for baked mackerel, which will surprise not only home, but also invited guests. Tomatoes will add juiciness to the fish, fried onions will give a slight sweetness, and a ruddy cheese crust will make the dish truly festive. And at the same time, it cooks very quickly.

Step by step method

  • Step 1

    Clean the mackerel. Cut off the head and tail, as well as the fins. Then, with a sharp knife, cut along the body. Remove the spine and all bones.

  • Step 2

    Salt the halves and sprinkle with lemon juice. Leave for 20 minutes. Then fry in a grill pan in a small amount of oil. To make the fish fry better, lightly press it with a spatula to the surface. And try not to overdo it. 5-6 minutes over high heat is enough, because you will still bake it.

  • Step 3

    Put the fried fish on a baking sheet greased with vegetable oil.

  • Step 4

    Cut the onion into half rings and fry in the oil left over from the fish. Cut the tomatoes into circles, rub the cheese on a grater.

  • Step 5

    Brush the fish with sour cream. Put tomatoes on top, then fried onions, sprinkle with grated cheese. Send to the oven.

  • Step 6

    As soon as the cheese is browned, you can get it. Cool before serving. Any side dish is suitable for such a dish, and do not forget about fresh vegetables.

Tips & variations

  • Defrost fish on the bottom shelf of the fridge or on the table at room temperature.

  • When cutting mackerel, you need to not only remove the insides, but also completely remove all dark films from the abdomen.

  • The fish will taste better if it is acidified. For this, it is desirable to use fresh lemon juice, but in some cases, table wine, apple, rice or plain 9% vinegar will do.

  • Mackerel goes well with basil. For cooking, you can use both dried and fresh herbs of this spicy herb.
