• Butterflied mackerel fillets

    £14.99Price

    Our butterflied* mackerel fillets are the freshest, firm-fleshed, oil-rich fish with a torpedo-like shape and iridescent silver and blue striped skin.

     

    They're both delicious and nutritious, with intense creamy meat packed with omega-3 fatty acids. It's the ideal choice if you're looking to eat a healthy, balanced diet and want the convenience of prepared, butterflied fillets.

     

    Mackeral is particularly versatile when it comes to cooking, lending well to frying, grilling, curing, salting and smoking - we have a whole range of mackerel recipes you could try.

     

    Our fish is a world away from what you will find in the supermarket:

     

    Fresh means fresh

    We deliver high-quality fresh fish to your door either the day it's caught (for locally-landed Sussex fish) or within 1-2 days if it's from elsewhere in the UK. Unlike a lot of supermarket fish, ours has never been previously frozen, so you're guaranteed that fresh means fresh.

     

    Seasonal & UK-sourced

    We select fresh fish in season from within the UK - as much as possible comes from our local Sussex waters. This means our fish has fewer food miles than non-UK fish so it reaches you fresher, has a lower environmental impact and isn't frozen on its journey to you.

     

    Generous fillet portions

    Our portion fillets are a minimum of 180-200g** each, which you'll find is much more generous than your usual supermarket portion. This means it goes further and provides better value-for-money.

     

    Plastic-free sustainable packaging

    We use plant-based, compostable packaging for our fresh fish paper wrapping, labels and bags. You can freeze your fresh fish in the paper it arrives in and, when you have finished with it, add it to your food waste bin, compost bin or garden compost and it will break down into organic material in a matter of weeks.

     

    Free delivery

    We deliver free every Friday and Saturday - we have a range of pre-bookable time-slots for your postcode.

     

    We have two different order sizes:

     

    Choose MEDIUM for 4 x 180-200g** butterflied fillets

    Fish supplied skin-on and pre-portioned (pin boning may be required)

    £14.99

     

    Choose LARGE for 6 x 180-200g** butterflied fillets

    Fish supplied skin-on and pre-portioned (pin boning may be required)

    £19.99


    *Butterflying is another way of filleting a finfish. Rather than taking the fillets away from the backbone, the bone is taken out. The result is one larger fillet, instead of two smaller ones.

    **Weights may vary

    • Provenance

      Our mackerel is from the Shetland islands and caught in the North Atlantic sea. More details

    • How should I store my fish?

      When we deliver your order, pop it straight in the fridge (in the compostable greaseproof paper in which it is wrapped). Fresh fish is best enjoyed the same day it's delivered by us to you, or within 2 days. Each pack features a label with a 'Use By' date which will be 2 days after the date your fish was packed and delivered.

       

      Alternatively, if you're planning to eat your fish 2+ days later, freezing is recommended to maintain freshness. To freeze your fish, place it straight in the freezer as soon as possible - it freezes well in the compostable greaseproof paper in which it is wrapped. It will be fine for up to two months after the 'Use By' date. Defrost your fish thoroughly before use and, once defrosted, use on the same day. Do not re-freeze.

       

      Please remember to dispose of the compostable greaseproof paper in your food waste bin, compost bin or garden compost. It will break down into organic material in a matter of weeks.

    • Omega-3 fats:

      Omega-3 fats are a group of unsaturated fats that we need to stay healthy – especially for heart health. Eating foods high in omega-3 fats could help to prevent heart attacks and strokes.

       

      There are different types of omega-3 fats which are found in different foods. The main ones are:

       

      ALA (alpha linolenic acid)

      • ALA is essential for good health, but our bodies can’t make it, so we need to get it from the foods we eat. It’s mainly found in vegetable oils, nuts and seeds.

       

      EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)

      • We need these types of omega-3 fats for a healthy heart and blood circulation. Our bodies can make some of these fats from the ALA in the food we eat, but only a small amount. So, it’s good to eat foods that already contain them.

       

      Oily fish including sardines, salmon, trout and mackerel are the best source of EPA and DHA.
