Smoked Mackerel Pate, Talisker Whisky and Lime with Sourdough Toast
HIS dish is on our Starter and Bar Menu at the moment at The Jolly Cricketers.
This exceptionally good looking fish with its shiny blue and silver skin is classed as a humble creature from the sea. It’s not only sustainable but this oily fish is packed with nutrients, iron and is rich in omega 3.
Due to the rich oily flesh mackerel works best with strong acid flavours such as lemons, limes, tomatoes, orange, whisky, fennel, chilli and ginger.
The skin of mackerel is thin and therefore crisps up easily and tastes equally delicious. My philosophy about mackerel is to keep it simple; it’s a humble fish.
