Keep it simple, little fishy. A focus on the olive oil, accentuated by fresh tomato, lemon, and basil really lets these flavorful Carapau take center stage.
Horse Mackerel are widely consumed in Portugal, and come in many sizes. ABC+ sources the smallest at the market, as they tend to be packed with the most flavor and nutrients. The Virgem sauce is a perfect accent to this meaty and flavorful fish. Made with fresh peeled tomatoes, lemon juice, and basil, this is a simple sauce that lets the flavor of the fish shine through.
SERVING: Atop a flavorful rice dish in need of unique protein, next to subtle, soft cheeses on a board with crackers, enjoyed straight out of the tin among friends
