WHAT IS HORSE MACKEREL?
Now for this delicious steamed fish recipe, we’re using horse mackerel. Known in Japanese as aji (あじ), these flavorful fish are part of the larger mackerel family.
Mackerel (saba, 鯖) is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and is quite oily. The firm and flaky meat makes it the perfect fish for this hearty steamed mackerel with potatoes, cherry tomatoes, olives and healthy cabbage recipe. It’s an ample meal you could easily place in the comfort-food recipe box.
