Hi Great Cookies!
And happy Thursday to you!
I got a hold of some local "holy mackerel" or DELICIOUS mackerel anyway, and so here's to what some experts deem as the "healthiest fish you can eat!"
Regardless of health factors, I find the taste, skin, and oils and all, just absolutely amazing and so it's worth it to me either way!
I gutted and cleaned those great guys, and then mopped them through grapeseed oil and put them on a grill grate atop the little tiny old Brinkmann gas smoker, with pistachio shells used as "smoking chips" and a temp of about 250 and for 30 minutes.
And I have no idea why this squinty in the sun gal keeps photo bombing all my threads???? OK, just waiting for the smoker to finish...
And they were WONDERFUL!!!!!!! From brown sultry color, to savory flavor and soft-fall-apart flesh, and tasty as ever skin; this simple as ever meal, was so damn good!
I added Tunisian olive oil, and black pepper, blue salt, and salad. This was really terrific and the fish was superb!
Munching up the fins and such, I was 'thorough' - my favorite part of any fish being the skin - and all was just fine!
Thanks for sharing in my holy smoked mackerel kind of day!!! Make today delicious! It's time for a pot of wheat-free spaghetti now over here!!!!!!!! (End of day snack). And with garlic and basil and oil and maybe some snails!
Cheers!!!!!!!!! - Leah
