Grilled Mackerel with Fennel

Grilled Mackerel with Fennel

This is shioyaki-style grilled mackerel, but adding the fragrance of fennel turns it into a Mediterranean dish.

Ingredients: 3 servings

Mackerel
1
Fennel leaves
1 bunch
Lemon
1/2
Olive oil
2 tablespoons
Salt
1 teaspoon

Steps

1. Pack the fennel leaves into a baking tray, and add some olive oil.
2. Slice the mackerel in half, rub the salt into the flesh and place on top of the fennel. Add more olive oil.
3. Bake in the oven at 200℃ for 15 minutes. Turn the fillets over halfway through.
4. When done, discard the fennel you cooked with the fish. Cut new fennel into bite-sized pieces and serve it with the fish and lemon.

Story Behind this Recipe

I got some really nice fennel so I used the leaves extravagantly.
