    This was definitely a “taste surprise” can of mackerel! What do I mean by this? When I first opened the tin I was pretty underwhelmed, the fish comes pretty loosely packed, it was a little all-over-the-place appearance-wise, and the oil is very pale. However, when I took a bite, “wow!” it’s some seriously tasty fish! The flavor is pretty mild, but very satisfying, just the right medium amount of “fish-y” and salty, no off flavors whatsoever. Also almost no aroma upon opening either. I would say that it’s a tad on the firm side, but comes apart pretty easily on the bite. I thought on first glance that I was going to *need* to spruce this up with some hot sauce (and after I got about halfway through I did), but it actually tasted great as it stands. I had it on a plain toasted english muffin, but given that the olive oil is not too flavorful, I think having it on buttered toast might be nice (the smooth creamy flavor of butter might go well with this fish). I think this could make a really good beginner can of mackerel for the uninitiated, boneless, skinless, and pretty mild (along with a decent saltiness) I could see someone nervous about tinned fish loving this. Overall for the money, this is a good solid value, I might personally prefer something more exciting in the mackerel world at this price point, like Nuri spiced mackerel, but this is still a very solid can from Cole’s.
