Get some Cajun seasoning powder and lightly coat goujon size strips of the mackerel with it and then shallow fry quickly. Delicious if you like hot spicy food:)

Echo that I have a recipe for Blackened Fish on http://www.boat-angling.co.uk/9.html, also smoked mackeral pate and if you go to the "Others" section there is a how-to guide to making your own hot smoker. We did a few this weekend, scrummy.

if they are fesh, then just fillet and skin, cut into thin strips, squeeze over lemon juice and sea salt with black pepper, and eat as is, no cooking.
a little dab of horseradish is nice too.

I do mine the following way.
Clean out fish.
Fill cavity with chopped spring onions and ground ginger, salt, pepper and a couple of small knobs of butter.
Wrap fish in tinfoil and bake in oven Gas mark5 for 25 mins.
Unwrap, open fish, and lift out back bone etc in one piece, close fish.
Eat while hot.

I love mackerel and I think less is more too.

I butterfly them, salt & pepper and splash of olive oil and straight onto a red hot BBQ or pan.
