15 Minute Main Dish High in Omega 3’s-Blackened Mackerel


Since I have been reading about Atlantic mackerel lately and it’s wonderful health benefits, I thought I would try it out on my kids. They loved it! Mackerel is high in Omega-3 oil content, making it a heart-healthy seafood choice. It has a rich flavor that is delicious whether sauteed, roasted or grilled, and it’s great topped with Greek seasoning, nuts, vinaigrettes, soy sauce or miso. Since I’m a Southern girl, I love it Blackened. It’s so simple to prepare; just 15 minutes and dinner is on the table.
