Smoked Mackerel and Dill Rice (Mahi Doudi va Shevid Polow)

Howth by Saeid @ Whats for Dinner?We enjoyed our breakfast of smoked mackerel so much that went to Howth to buy some more. At the Wrights of Howth we got 3 wilded catch (France) for 10.50e.
Smoked Mackerel by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?While gutted the Mackerel still had its head, bones and skin. Not to worry it was so easy to de-bone (just asked our fisherman house mate).
Cleaning Smoked Mackerel by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?Cut along the side of the fish, putting your knife between the top fillet and the backbone. Separate the the fish into two. Pull the head with the back bone off in one go. That takes care of most of the bones. The rest are easy to pick out.
Smoked Mackerel and Dill Rice (Shevid Palow) by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?We didn't heat the mackerel up, but just mixed it in with hot dill rice and mint and cucumber yogurt.


  1. Did you have to cook the fish,or was it cooked when you bought it? Did you eat it for breakfast, or some other meal? What was that sauce on the dish with it?

  2. The Mackerel was hot smoked (therefore cooked). We had it with rice for lunch, but also for breakfast with bread. The sauce is yogurt, salt, cumcumber and mint.
