BEFORE BOILING:

Frozen mackerel completely thawed. We clean, rinse and cut into chunks. If you cook mackerel whole, we trimmed it by removing the gills (would give the dish a bitter taste).

BOILING:

Put in boiling vegetable stock (with lots of onions), a mixture of water and white wine, water, milk or the same wine. The fluid may cover up to half of the fish. Cook over low heat so as not to break the delicate meat: fillets and ringtones - for 7-10 minutes, very large pieces or whole fish - for 15-20 minutes. Add the crushed garlic with salt and sugar. We can add slices of lemon or onion, peppercorns, dill, marjoram and other spices. To brew can also add dried mushrooms. We boil under sealed cover. Mackerel is cooked when it turns brighter, and the meat easily from each other go.

ONCE BOILED:

Cooked fish very carefully pull out the strainer. Fluid from the cooking should be used to cook the sauce.

SERVING TIPS:

Boiled fish tastes great with butter sauce, dill and olive oil and chives or mint. Serve accompanied by salads, salad or rice, potatoes, lentils and millet.

Bon appétit!
