Buying Tips

Quality mackerel is easy to recognize. Fresh mackerel never smells fishy, and the eyes should appear bright and clear, almost alive. The gills should be clean, and the skin moist and with tightly adhering, shiny scales. Fresh mackerel should be stiff; it shouldn’t bend when you hold it by its head and tail. When choosing mackerel steaks or fillets, whether they’re fresh or previously frozen, look for moist, translucent (never dried out) flesh.

Varieties

Atlantic mackerel (also called Boston mackerel) is often used in sashimi. Spanish mackerel has only a small percentage of red meat and a milder taste than other kinds of mackerel. King mackerel (also called kingfish or cavalla) has a firm texture and distinct taste. Cero mackerel (also called cerro or painted mackerel), caught in waters along the coast of Florida, has leaner flesh and more delicate flavor than most varieties. Pacific mackerel (also called American, blue, or chub) is an oily fish with an assertive flavor. Pacific jack mackerel (also called horse mackerel) is often canned. Wahoo (also called ono), is a subtropical fish with a delicate flavor; it is often used for sashimi.

Fresh mackerel is sold whole, as fillets, and as steaks.

    I am truly uncertain about Row 4. Are there 2 SC next to each other? The pattern is reading NTDC & 2DC, Ch2, SC in space, Ch2, DC1-2hC-DC2, Ch2, SC in space. When the star-to-star loops around, there is a Ch 2, SC, Ch 2, SC, Ch2 that prevents the pattern from looking looking even across Row four. What am I doing wrong? Adorable shrug! I would love to make one!
