Grilled mackerel with garlic and parsley butter
I had the best fishing experience this morning. Andy and I are in Maine (in the US) and early this morning we went out with his parents on the Belfast harbor for muffins and coffee, bringing along two fishing poles. We never really expected to catch anything, but it was a true success and we ended up with six beautiful mackerels to have for lunch. We gutted the fish and cut the bones out so we had two nice fillets per fish.
Marnie, my mother-in-law, made a small fire, and over it we grilled the fillets on both sides for a couple of minutes. We melted some leftover garlic/parsley butter (just made of butter, garlic and chopped parsley all mashed together) and poured it over the mackerel fillets along with a sprinkling of sea salt.
It was just the perfect lunch, served with some steamed green beans from the garden!
