Baked Mackerel and Poor Man’s Potatoes

Posted By Stephen

Yesterday we bought some whole mackerel and planned to do something interesting with it this evening. We have loads of thyme growing in our garden so we thought we’d use up some of that and Kerri found a really good sounding recipe. However, when we got home and started making it, we found that we didn’t have nearly enough onion for the recipe, so we simply stuffed them with thyme, lemon and garlic, wrapped them in foil and stuck them into the oven.

The reason that we’d run out of onions was that we were also making “poor man’s potatoes”. This is from a Spanish cookery book called The Real Taste of Spain and we’ve made it before. This time we didn’t put any red pepper into it though, and cooked it for a bit longer and it turned out rather like a potato and onion rosti of sorts. Really tasty.

    Just catching up whilst I’ve been away – all sorts of delicious things you’ve been cooking up. Love mackerel and had a fair bit up in North Wales – this recipe looks great.

    That’s a great looking dinner. I really like the sound of those potatoes.

    Thank you both. I think cooking the potatoes and onions down so much concentrated the flavours too much which meant they over-powered the fish a little, I think they would work brilliantly together otherwise.
