“A flavorful stew with tomatoes and cabbage. Very versatile. Serve with boiled yams, plantains, potatoes, rice, or any other starch on the side. Sardines in tomato sauce can stand in for the mackerel.”

Directions

  1. Place cabbage into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat canola oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil until onion is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir tomatoes into onion mixture, place cover on saucepan, and cook until tomatoes are soft, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Mix water and tomato paste in a small bowl until smooth; pour into the saucepan. Stir the mixture, replace the cover, and cook another 5 minutes. Add mackerel in tomato sauce; season with red pepper flakes and seasoned salt. Stir drained cabbage into the mixture. Cover saucepan and simmer mixture until mackerel is hot, 10 to 15 minutes.

This recipe is very good to me but my brother hated it. I think if you love paella you will like this. I would love to try this with mixed seafood.

Simple and quick to make. Very tasty and healthy too. When I have more time I plan to make it with all fresh ingredients. Thanks for a delicious meal.

This was a very quick dish to make. I used frozen stir fry peppers/onions, cabbage and a bag of frozen collard greens. I used crushed tomatoes, liquid smoke, minced garlic and several Mrs. Dash blends to taste (Steak Grill, Garlic, Table blend) and Old Bay seasoning. The mackerel I used was plain and not tomato. I make another similar dish with kale or collard greens and tilapia fish. I like to serve with gumbo vegetables and tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and hot sauce. GREAT! I hadn't had mackerel in decades and it's better than sardines, but not as good as red salmon to me. My husband liked it better than I did. The canned fish definitely takes away from the dish. I would make it again because it's FAST and my husband really liked it. :)
