Marinated Spanish Mackerel Steaks


I have been working on healthy and delicious fish recipes for my family as we look to completely remove all red meat from our meal plans. I came across mackerel steaks at our local grocery store and thought I would give it a try and see how my family would rate it overall.

I selected Panamei Seafood because it is supposed to have a delicate texture and flavorful. Suggested ways of preparing is barbecuing and smoking or frying and served with sauses. It’s easy to prepare and a great substitute if trying to avoid some or all meat. My family loved it all except for our son who refuses to eat any meat and has claimed he is a vegetarian. Well at least he eats tuna. Hope you can try it as well and let me know what you think?
