José Gourmet Mackerel Fillets in Olive Oil


The traditional abundance of mackerel in Portuguese waters, and its frequent intake has provided it with a special status at our table. Captured in the north-eastern Atlantic Ocean, this fish represents a food product which has attracted increasing interest, motivated by scientific evidence regarding its nutritional properties.

Tired of living winter time in the dark depths of the ocean, a certain mackerel wanted to change its destiny. It turned into fillets and became the seahorses’ keeper, in disguise. Thus, it stopped trembling in fear, and began shaking from the cold.
