Back in April the family men took an all day charter and got their fill of fish, particularly mackerel. Unfortunately, the word we got from a few people (and online) was that mackerel was a lousy eating fish--oily, fishy etc. Well, I wasn't too happy about that but I started searching for recipes, as we had several meals worth. I love fish, but can't stand salmon and I feared it would be like that.
The good news is, it's outstanding!! Actually we liked it more than snapper or grouper. I found a simple recipe (it's actually Korean) where all you do is rub it with Kosher salt, some olive oil and either grill it (which we did) or dust it with flour and pan fry it. We did remove the skin, before eating, but the flavor and texture were excellent.
So, don't believe what "everybody" tells you. They sure can be wrong.
