A super easy recipe featuring omega-3 rich and inexpensive mackerel. Its oily meat and strong taste is highly prized by discerning gourmets, but it might not initially appeal to first time eaters.
|2||mackerel fillets||200 g|
|1/2 tsp||olive oil||2.5 mL|
|ground pepper to taste|
|1/2||onions, sliced crosswise||100 g|
|1 pinch||salt [optional]||0.1 g|
Before you start
Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.
- Preheat the oven to 175ºC/350ºF.
- Slice the onion crosswise, then separate the segments to make rings.
- Arrange the fillets (can be either fresh or frozen) on a cooking dish or plate. Brush lightly with oil, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover each fillet with the onion rings.
- Place in the middle of the oven and cook for about 20 min (25 min if frozen) until the flesh turns white. It is important to check with a fork to see if they are cooked through, since they get tough and dry when overcooked.
- Serve on the warmed plates.
