Our smoked mackerel fillets are salt cured and traditionally smoked over wood. It’s rich and flavoursome, with wonderfully soft, creamy-tasting, flesh. Our hot smoked mackerel has a minimum weight of 175g.
We buy our hot smoked mackerel from Billingsgate Market, sourced from a select range of traditional smokehouses in the north-east of Scotland.

Our hot smoked mackerel fillets are already cooked and delicious just as they are. Try them in a salad, quiche or omelette, or blended with cream cheese, lemon and pepper to make a tasty pâté. The robust smokiness of the fish stands up to stronger flavours, and pairs particularly well with horseradish or beetroot.
Fancy some pure comfort food? Warm the fillets up and serve drizzled with lemon juice on hot, buttered toast.
