Patagonia Provisions Spanish Paprika Mackerel


Our Atlantic Mackerel is seasoned with a slow-cooked blend of onion, red bell pepper, garlic and paprika, and packed in extra-virgin olive oil. Rich and mellow, with a hint of heat, it’s a great pantry staple for adding to pasta and salads.
The seasonings are on the bottom, so flip the open can onto a plate to allow them to flow evenly over the fish.

Each can contains 4.2 oz; fully cooked.

WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm —

Atlantic mackerel is the small fish with the mild flavor and big, meaty texture of a large fish. But there are many other reasons to give it a try. Unlike large apex predators like tuna and swordfish, these mackerel are small, schooling fish that occur in great abundance, providing a truly sustainable harvest. They’re caught by hook and line, with little to no bycatch, by traditional fishing families in northern Spain. Since Atlantic mackerel are low on the ocean food chain, they don’t have the high levels of mercury and other toxins that can concentrate in larger fish. And they are an excellent source of protein, vitamin B-12, and other essential nutrients, with 500 mg of Omega 3 fatty acids per serving.

The Patagonia Provisions Guarantee (which we fully endorse and support):

We understand that fixing the broken food chain means sourcing ingredients that are grown, raised and harvested using methods that are friendly to our home planet.

But it doesn’t work if the foods we create aren’t mouth-wateringly, plate-lickingly delicious. That’s why we work with our favorite chefs to create foods that we love to eat and share.

If you ever order Provisions and aren’t 100% satisfied, we will happily refund you in full. In other words, we’re proud to stand by the flavor, nutrition, sourcing and quality of everything we make.

    This is my second time having mackerel. I ate it with some tomatoes and eggs, just poured the whole tin in the pan and heated it up with the tomatoes for a bit. It seemed like too much oil so I was worried but once I added the eggs, it seemed fine.

    The fish itself were large pieces, good size with no smell. The texture was a bit firm and had a good chew. The flavor was nice and mild. My only disappointment was the additions / flavorings. The oil had was redddish, I assume from the paprika, and I could see pieces of pepper and onion, but I couldn’t taste these. I would have liked more flavoring from it as if I had my eyes closed and didn’t know what I was eating, I might have said it was just in plain olive oil.

    The overall meal was easy to make, filling and did taste okay but it didn’t blow my socks off. I’d eat it again if I had it laying around but not sure if I’ll go out of my way to buy again.

    I am partial to all of the Patagonia seafood products; however, the Spanish Paprika Mackerel is my absolute favorite. I eat it every week, and until now had only been sourcing from their website. It is delicious by itself, with crackers, over a bowl of barley, the list could go on. There is a whopping serving of nutrients in each of these cans, you can go wrong, give them a try.

    Mackerel is my favorite tinned fish. So I enjoy trying different varieties and brands (so much to explore!). This was great, the paprika gave these a added depth of flavor which I didn’t pick up on at first but, after a few bites, really started to notice. There small pieces of red pepper and onion which didn’t taste like much but I suspect added to the flavor profile overall. Excellent and will keep this one in rotation.
