My wife and I eat a lot of fish. My wife also happens to love mackerel. This dish is a big hit with both of us.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 pounds of fresh mackerel

  • 1 teaspoon smoked salt (optional)
  • 1-2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper

Directions:
Wash the mackerel, and pat dry with paper towels. Cut the fish into 4-inch pieces

Score the skin side of each fillet with two or three diagonal cuts.

Brush each piece with olive oil, season with kosher salt and white pepper.

Grill skin side down at 425° F. under a closed grill for a few minutes, until fat begins to ooze from the top of the fish. Remove from grill. Place on a plate.

Sprinkle with smoked paprika and a dash of smoked salt, and serve with lemon wedges.
