    Very meaty fillets, not as dry as the Nuri spiced whole mackerel but a bit fishier. These were eaten straight out of the tin, but I bet these would be amazing mixed with some red onion, a little kewpie mayo and some fresh herbs!

    As always, Nuri seems to be a stiff tin to open as I popped it open to very little scent. This could be an office friendly tin. There were four whole fillets, tightly packed, and it was a bit tough to get the first one out, but they held together nicely. The inside of the fillets still had the ghost tracks of the spines and rib bones which would look nice if you wanted to make a spiffy looking plate. The oil had a nice auburn hued oil and had the usual suspected aromatics, carrot, pickle, chile, clove, peppercorn, & laurel. I was a bit worried with how well they stayed together that they would be bone dry. Fortunately, while the texture was quite firm, they had a good amount of moisture from the oil. Their flavor was well seasoned, and the spice blend really comes through with the mackerel being milder than sardines. There was even a hint of heat that lingered and as expected, the oil was great. You don’t have to slurp it down until it drips from you chin like I did, but don’t waste it.
