Super Quick Canned Boiled Mackerel & Tomato Spaghetti

Super Quick Canned Boiled Mackerel & Tomato Spaghetti

If you have tomatoes, you can use canned boiled mackerel (or canned mackerel) to make an authentic, rich pasta in a jiffy! This quick dish can be made in just 15 minutes.

Ingredients: 1 serving

90-150 g (as much as you want!)
Tomato (or 1/2 can of tomatoes)
2 medium (or 1 large)
Canned boiled mackerel
1 can
1 clove (or paste)
●Red chili pepper
1 cm, seeds removed and chopped
●Olive oil
1 teaspoon
Salt and pepper
to taste
Soy sauce
a small amount
Bay leaf (optional)


1. Boil the pasta. Meanwhile, add the ● ingredients (olive oil, etc.) to a pot. Heat on low until the garlic and red chili pepper infuse the oil.
2. Once the garlic browns, add the can of mackerel, including the liquid. Break apart the pieces of mackerel and cook on high heat to evaporate the moisture.
3. Once the moisture has pretty much evaporated, add the roughly chopped tomatoes (don't remove the skin or seeds!) and bay leaf. Cook quickly on high heat.
4. Season with salt and pepper and flavor with some soy sauce. Add the pasta (which has been boiled 1 minute less than stated on package), and mix with the sauce.
5. Lastly, taste and adjust the flavor as necessary. Once the noodles have become as cooked as you want, it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I've heard of tuna and tomato pasta but then I wondered how mackerel and tomato pasta would taste. So I tried it out and it turned into a rich and flavorful pasta.
The sauce is finished during the time it takes to boil the pasta, so it's convenient.
