Just had some rice and mackerel

Totally bland!!!!

Half my plate was filled with mackerel the other half with rice. I added some brown sauce to give the "meal" a bit of taste.

Any ideas on making this mackerel and rice more attractive to eat?

    Have you tried making kedgery (sp) mate? Its basically the same ingredients, make a load of good rice, boil some eggs, chop them up, chop up the cooked fish, chuck in some herbs and maybe some diced veg, and mix together, can add some soy sauce also, slap some ketchup on top. Tastes great!

    Dice the mackerel and stir fry with onions and mushrooms. Add some diced tomatoes, soy sauce and season. Then stir fry in the rice and there u go... sorted. Maybe even put some ketchup to mask the taste! Not a really a fan of it myself!

    I like a tin or two of mackrel in tomato sauce, then just chuck in with a portion of rice mix and eat, quite nice tasting, if wack in a small tin of tuna you will have two portions, as I found out.

    You can buy small tins of makrel in tomato sauce in Tesco which many people like to eat on toast. Even has a picture of it on toast, on the tin.

    Obviously you want veg and carbs in your meals too, but for a snack, this might be a good suggestion?

    - 1 tin of mackeral in spicey tom sauce (princes is best)
    - 2 slices of bread
    - toast 1 side of bread
    - flip bread over and add mackeral to other side, probably best to mash the mackeral up a little in a bowl first
    - add some thin slices of stilton, some mixed herbs and drizzle in a decent virgin olive oil.
    - chuck back under grill until cheese is nicely melted

    mmmmmmmmmmmmm

    I agree with cliff Princess is better than John west for example, I had both tins and fount Princess is better in taste and has more tomato falvour.

    Well i cooked up some rice.

    Lighly cooked the tined mackerel in a wok with some Virgin Oil...added in this vinegar type sauce (cant mind the name now) and then added the cooked rice.....and mixed it all up.

    I gave it about 3 minutes on low heat and put it on my plate and added a small bit of brown sauce.

    Lovely!

    Although i have to say from personal taste, John West run rings round Princess for their tuna. I cant eat Princess tuna. Gotta be John West!
