Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Lightly grease a baking dish.
  2. Rub both sides of each mackerel fillet with olive oil and place with the skin side down into the prepared baking dish. Season each fillet with the paprika, salt, and pepper. Top each fillet with two lemon slices.
  3. Bake the fillets under the broiler until the fish just begins to flake, 5 to 7 minutes. Serve immediately.

The olive oil and lemon added just enough flavor. The broiled lemon was an excellent idea.

Made this last night and it was so simple to make. I did not have fresh lemon so I added California Lemon Peel (McCormick) in the seasonig mix along with some Zesty Lemon (Weber). Before baking I sprinkled additional Lemon Peel on top. We had Mackerel steaks (instead of fillet) so cooking time was a bit longer and I did flip the steaks for an additional 5 minutes to complete cooking throughout. They came out moist & flaky and very delicious.

4.5 stars!!! Delicious! The perfect amount of seasoning - you could still enjoy the flavor of the fish.
