    Mon deux! I had to stop what I was doing, which was eating this tin, and write right away.

    Spicy and light! I’m big on mackerel, but you need the right kind. These mackerel are some of the lightest tasting that I’ve had, and the pepper flavor is very forward. Still a very peppery taste on my tongue as I write this.

    These are outstanding. Probably the best French mackerel available at RTG, and at this price you should get 2 tins.

    Solid tin but not a mackerel game-changer for me. I enjoyed this most when I got bites with pepper/onion pieces (from the bottom of the tin) but the fish was pretty dry without those pieces. It was amazing how much moisture the pepper/onion added to each bite. The amount of fix’ins underneath the fish was *much* less than the amount I’m used to in the Ferrigno artwork sardine tins and that was disappointing. Unlike fibersides’ review above, I am not sure I got any ‘peppery taste’ at all and found these to be a little underseasoned to my taste. Nevertheless, the fish quality was evident and I think these would be pretty good when used alongside other ingredients in a larger dish.

    Overall, this mackerel is worth your money. I assume that most people who get this tin probably aren’t eating it at room temp right from the can as I did, but in case that’s your style … this tin was just ok when doing that. If you are looking for mackerel to enjoy plain from the can, then I’d say the King Oscar Mediterranean Mackerel was a half-step better than this one in that regard.
