Monahan's Seafood Market | Fresh Whole Fish, Fillets, Shellfish, Recipes, Catering & Lunch Counter-Ann Arbor, Michigan

Mackerel is a rich and buttery fish that holds up to flavorful sauces, rubs and marinade. It’s also inexpensive and sustainable and loaded with the miracle fats, Omega 3s. FANTASTIC on the grill.

Scallions for garnish

Marinade mackerel fillets in some of our Teriyaki marinade for about 30 minutes (you can buy at the market or make it at home using this recipe). Prepare a HOT grill. Remove fillets from marinade to a plate, then put the marinade on the stove and reduce until it has boiled and thickened into a glaze consistency. Reserve.

Clean and oil your grill (very important!) Place fillets flesh-side down on the grill. Baste the skin with the teriyaki reduction, and flip after a minute or so. Generously baste with the glaze until the fish looks bubbly and brown, then remove to a platter and garnish with scallions. Grilling the mackerel will take less than a few minutes per side, as the fillets are not very thick. Due to their omega 3 richness, they are an incredibly moist and succulent fish for grilling. Give it a try!
