King Oscar Mackerel Fillets Mediterranean Style


If you spend any time in any of the online groups where tinned fish lovers gather in any kind of numbers a few fan favorites become obvious, and this is definitely one of them. People who try this love it. We did and do, too.

It’s perhaps a tad stronger flavored in the fishy sense than other mackerels, and it’s not packed to be the centerpiece of your seacuterie board, but the quality of the meat and the flavor of the additional ingredients makes this an excellent tin to stock up on.

    Easy 4 stars out of 5. Extremely delicious mackerel that’s flaky, moist, mildly soft, flavorful but not overpowering. Ate this simply on toast with sliced tomato and couldn’t have been any happier with that lunch.

    The description here says it’s stronger in the fishy sense, but don’t be afraid of the word ‘fishy.’ As a fish connoisseur, I certainly didn’t think it was too strong and would say that boost in flavor is a plus. Used as a replacement for canned tuna (which is so often dry and intended to disappear into the recipe), this is an ideal tin for those people like me who really want to still know they’re eating fish, even if there are other components in each bite. I do wish there were more olives in here -only got 2 slices of green, 2 slices of black- but that’s a minor downside when the tin was so tasty overall.

    Probably the first tin of mackerel I’ve ever had where I thought, “Oh yeah, I should get more of this.” Recommended!

    King Oscar continues to impress me with the quality of its tinned fish offering. This can of Mackerel was no exception. The filets were not pretty but the filets were large and oh so good. I ate one filet straight out of the can. The other I turned into a mackerel sandwich on rye bread. The filet’s flaked easily. The flavor of the spices made this a really great tin of fish. I will purchase this tin again.
