Smoked Mackerel Fillets
A rich, delicious fish, perfect for any time of the day
Swimming in vast shoals all around the coast of Britain, mackerel are torpedo-shaped fish with impossibly silvery skin and rippling mottled stripes. They're an oily fish with softly flaking, creamy flesh that has plenty of flavour. This makes it perfect for smoking: the richness of the flesh balances beautifully with the earthiness of the smoke. Smoked mackerel fillets are a tremendously versatile staple to have on hand in the freezer for simple lunches or satisfying suppers.

While it would seem that mackerel are abundant and plentiful, any species of fish can find itself in a precarious position when fishing becomes too aggressive. To make sure our native mackerel are around for generations to come, at Coombe Farm Organic we partner with fishermen who are committed to sustainable practices. This means they take only suitably sized fish at appropriate times of the year and always with consideration for the ocean environment.

At Coombe Farm we believe in sustainability. And we live it. Regarding our packaging:
Your delivery box is made of 100% recycled paper and is 100% recyclable.
To keep your order frozen we use ice packs which will retain a low temperature for a long period of time. Reuse them for a picnic or simply snip, empty the water and pop in your plastic recycling.
We use paper pulp sheets to insulate the box. They are great for craft projects or can also simply be recycled with paper waste.

Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.
You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

Smoked mackerel has a robust flavour that really wants to be the star of the show. Serve it simple flaked as part of a mixed deli board with cold meats, strong cheeses and fruity chutneys. Or add it to a crispy seasonal salad with lots of crunchy textures (peppery radishes are especially good) to balance the softness of the mackerel's flesh. Mixed with some white fish, smoked mackerel fillets are a flavoursome addition to fishcakes, and are an excellent choice for homemade sushi. Pair it with hot horseradish in a speedy pâté or enjoy it grilled and served with a sharp gooseberry purée.
