Cider Baked Mackerel

ingredients

serves 4
4 mackerel, gutted and cleaned
salt and freshly ground pepper
3/4 stick (6 Tbsp) 75 g butter
2 dessert apples, peeled and grated
1 small onion, skinned and grated
150 g (5 oz) Cheddar cheese, grated
2 oz (50 g) fresh breadcrumbs
45-60 ml (3-4 tbsp) dry cider
lemon wedges and chopped fresh parsley to garnish

method

1. Season the mackerel inside and out with salt and pepper.

2. Melt the butter in a small pan over a low heat.

3. Mix the apple, onion, 75 g (3 oz) cheese and the breadcrumbs in a bowl and bind with 15 ml (1 tbsp) melted butter. Stuff the fish with this mixture and secure the opening of each with two or three skewers.

4. Place the mackerel in an ovenproof dish and sprinkle remaining cheese over each. Pour over the remaining melted butter and sufficient cider to cover the base of the dish.

5. Lay a piece of buttered foil or greaseproof paper loosely over the dish. Bake in the oven at 180°C (350f) mark 4 for25-35 minutes, until the mackerel are cooked right through and golden brown. Serve straight from the dish and garnish with lemon wedges and parsley.

Having small mackerels (which made stuffing pretty useless) this became for me a sort of oven baked stew with parmesan replacing the cheddar (half quantities !). Still, the result was brilliant, great family dish appreciated also by those who are not keen on fish.
