Les Mouettes d’Arvor Mackerel Fillets with Organic Brittany Seaweed


It’s an old adage that the water you cook seafood in should be as salty as the sea. Nothing goes better with seafood flavors other things from the sea. It’s why the Japanese wrap using Nori, it’s why we offer Ao Nori Ko, it’s why we carry this Mackerel with seaweed. Taste the ocean.

    A tin full of tender mackerel fillets in a lightly vinegary sauce of sea lettuce. The substantial fillets are very tender—drier than the muscadet mackerel that turned me on to Les Mouettes d’Arvor in the first place, but not unpleasantly dry. There was some skin intact—a nice touch. The sauce is surprisingly mild—the sea lettuce and the vinegar are only gently briny, with lovely dark green notes and none of wakame’s iodine tang (not that I dislike that!).

    I had it gently warmed and over buttered sourdough, with misozuke cucumbers on the side. It would be good on pasta or polenta or rice, but I think a subtle/simple treatment like this is best. If I were to do it over, I’d dip the bread in sauce and fish rather than using the tin as a topping. And I’d maybe be more careful to drain sauce and then flip out the fish skin-side up—I love the silver glisten of mackerel skin.
