Smoked fish are not only delicious but also very healthy, people should eat them as much as possible. Here is a recipe that will definitely make you want to stick to that habit.
Smoked mackerel has a very intense flavour. Because of that this is probably not on everyone’s top 10.
I have to tell you though, that in combination with the ingredients I used for the spread, the taste of fish was milder.
Both onions and lemon gave it a very fresh, expressive but not too intense flavour.
