Lightly-Fried Mackerel (serves 2)
1 whole fish, clean and cut through the bones into 1-inch cross-sections
Pinches of salt
Pinches of freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp olive oil
1) Dry the fish slices. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on both sides.
2) Heat oil in a large pan over medium high heat.
3) Once the pan is hot add the fish. Cover with a splatter guard if you have any. Cook each side about 4-5 minutes or until the outside is slightly crisp and the inside is cooked thoroughly.
*If you are not used to eating fish with bones then you might as well skip this recipe. However, if you are willing to give it a try, be careful of the small bones!
*You can slice the fish head in half and then fry it. You can serve the head. Remember the head does have some good meat so don't waste it! If you find that sharing a meal with mini-jaws at the dinner table unappetizing then discard the head.
