Mackerels have a robust and intense taste with a hint of fishiness. Their firm texture makes them perfect for grilling, broiling, or smoking, and while oily, they are less so than sardines. When marinated in olive oil, their savory flavor blends well with the oil's fruity notes.

Small Mackerels in Olive Oil (Petits Maquereaux à l'Huile d'Olive) - 4.41 oz (125 g), by Berthe, from Portugal.

The Atlantic chub mackerel, scientifically known as Scomber colias, is a fish species in the Scombridae family. It is found throughout the Atlantic Ocean from Norway to Africa and in the Mediterranean Sea, as well as off the coasts of North and South America. It prefers coastal waters and often gathers near the surface. Recognizable by its metallic blue-green backs, silver sides, and vertical stripes, it typically reaches lengths of 30-40 centimeters.

Berthe, an esteemed canned fish producer, originated in Portugal in 1853. They select the best fish from the Matosinhos fish market, thoroughly process them, and promptly can them through Ramirez & Ca. (Filhos) SA, one of the world's oldest canneries dating back to 1906. Tailored for the French market, Berthe's tins feature French labeling with an iconic girl on the front, symbolizing Lyonnaise literature. Today, Berthe is part of the Ramirez portfolio.

Mackerel flesh is usually firm and has a bold flavor that some find strong and slightly fishy, making it great for grilling, broiling, or smoking. While oily, mackerels are not as oily as sardines. Here are some delicious ways to enjoy them:

  • On Toast: Spread the mackerels on toasted bread for a quick, satisfying snack or light meal. For extra flavor, add a squeeze of lemon juice or a sprinkle of herbs.
  • In Salads: Incorporate the mackerels into salads for a protein-rich addition. They pair well with greens, tomatoes, olives, and a simple vinaigrette.
  • In Pasta: Mix the mackerels with cooked pasta, garlic, cherry tomatoes, and parsley for a flavorful pasta dish.
  • In Tacos or Wraps: Use the mackerels as a filling for tacos or wraps, along with fresh vegetables and your favorite condiments. Antipasto Platter: Serve the mackerels as part of an antipasto platter alongside olives, cheese, roasted vegetables, and crusty bread.
  • In Stuffed Peppers: Stuff bell peppers with a mixture of mackerels, rice, tomatoes, and herbs, then bake until tender. Sushi Rolls: Roll the mackerels into sushi rolls with rice, avocado, and cucumber for a tasty and nutritious meal.
