Whole Roasted Mackerel with Citrus and Rosemary


  • Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 whole mackerel, cleaned, about 2.5 pounds
  • 4 pats butter
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 6 cloves peeled garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450F. Use a very sharp knife to cut a slit in the fish that enlarges the opening where the fish was cleaned.
  2. Slice half of the lemon thinly. Cut the other half of the lemon in 2 pieces. Do the same with the grapefruit.
  3. Stuff the fish with the citrus slices, garlic cloves, pats of butter, and the rosemary sprigs. Arrange the fish on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Set the citrus wedges on the pan with the fish, and sprinkle the whole fish with salt.
  4. Roast the fish for 20-30 minutes until the eye is opaque and the fish is firm and flaky. Gently remove pieces of fish using a spatula. Squirt the fish with lemon and grapefruit juice from the roasted pieces, and sprinkle with a little extra salt.
  5. Serve the mackerel with your favorite side dishes!
