Crispy Mackerel Salad

So this was a meal for one and a delicious one at that.  It can be difficult to motivate children to eat well but I find my own diet can sometimes be lacking, especially when I'm eating alone.  This is a source of omega 3, tasty and delicious, even if you're a touch reluctant when it comes to oily fish.  Most importantly though, after a long day, it's quick.

Crispy Mackerel - Serves 1


2 tbsp Sweet chilli sauce
1 Mackerel fillet, defrosted if frozen
15g, 1/2 oz Rice Krispies
15g, 1/2 oz Plain flour / all purpose flour
Spray oil

Salad, rice and sweet chilli sauce to serve.


Preheat the oven to 200oC, 400F, Gas Mark 6.

Crush the rice krispies and mix with the flour.

Skin the mackerel if liked.  Cut into thick strips about the width of a finger.  Dunk each strip into sweet chilli sauce and then into the flour mix.

Put onto a tray lined with non stick baking paper spray with oil and bake for approx 15 minutes or until crisped on the outside and cooked through.

Serve with salad and / or rice with a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce.

Make it Thrifty:

Frozen mackerel fillets are a great way to keep costs down.


  1. That looks lovely, we hardly ever have fish at home because I just don't know what to do with it but I reckon I could give this a go. Thanks for sharing with Thrifty Thursday :-)

  2. I love mackerel, especially with scrambled egg for a breakfast treat. This recipe looks lovely, a change from the norm and simple to make. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Make sure you use fresh mackerel (not smoked) I don't think the smokey flavour would go. I hope you enjoy!
