Hot damn! These little fellas pack a punch. The bold texture and natural oils stand up to piri-piri pepper with bravado…fragrant and fabulosa.
Go ahead, take a spin, the spice is right. Paired with beans and bay leaf or toast and tomato—plus a dash of lemon—flavors are finely balanced. This lively fish is a game changer for any aperitivo.
Mackerels help train your brain; they are chock full of omega-3 fatty acids that boost brain development and lessen the risk of depression. Cheers!
