Herb Barbecued Makerel

The Atlantic Mackerel is by far the most common of the ten species of the family that are caught in British waters.

It’s one of my favourite fish….a flavour like no other.

It is extremely common in huge shoals migrating towards the coast to feed on small fish and prawns during the summer.

I think this is why we can’t seem to find it anymore, maybe it’s just food for fishing 😦

Anyways I love makerel….whatever!!


2 fresh whole Makerel, cleaned
Fresh Mushrooms, sliced
Green onions, sliced
1-2 tbsp Virgin oil
Fresh lemons & limes

Herbes & Spices

Fresh herbs are preferable

Garlic, chopped
Garlic spice
Coarse Salt


Rinse the fresh fish and place each of the fish on 2 sheets of tin foil. ( Spray the tin foil with vegetable oil )

In the cavity, place fresh herbs and mushrooms while also adding herbs and spices, lemon and lime slices on top of the fish before sealing. Wrap all the sides and ends completely.

Cook on the barbecue for 10 minutes per side, 20 minutes total or in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Serves with sliced tomatoes, fresh vegetables, and rice.

Serves 2
