General principles for cooking mackerel fish dishes with mayonnaise
Mackerel is a type of sea fish that is sold exclusively frozen. The taste of dishes depends largely on properly produced thawing. It is undesirable to thaw fish in water, it is more correct to do it in the refrigerator or in the open air. The structure of mackerel meat is such that when dressing it can be stratified into rings. For convenience of cutting the fish is not defrosted to the end and the skin is not removed from it.
The quality of frozen fish is difficult to determine. After thawing, pay attention to the fat layer. If it is of a yellowish tint, do not risk, the fish may have been frozen more than once. With any kind of heat treatment, its meat will fall apart, and the finished dish can be bitter.
Boiled, baked or fried mackerel, as a rule, is somewhat dryish, since it gives away fat easily. But you can use a little trick - cook mackerel in mayonnaise, be sure to add vegetables.
Mayonnaise can be selected at its discretion. Do not like too fatty foods - take a low-calorie sauce. Know how to make mayonnaise yourself - better use it. The main thing is not to overdo it, the extra fat is completely useless to the fish.
