Simmered Miso Mackerel

The cost of my weekly grocery bill seems to be increasing lately and in efforts to be economical while still eating well. I got some frozen Pacific mackerel by Orizon Foods, a 1lb bag cost $3.99. Mackerel can be often overlooked but this oily fish, is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D and is low in mercury. Enjoy this healthy fish dish with some fluffy rice.


Serves 2

  • 4-5 mackerel fillets
  • 2 tbsp dashi miso paste
  • 1 tbsp mirin sweet cooking seasoning
  • ½ cup water


  • Green onion
  • Furikake seasoning


  1. Defrost mackerel the night before in the refrigerator.
  2. In small bowl mix the miso paste, mirin seasoning and water together.
  3. Simmer the mackerel in the sauce mixture for about 10- 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the fish and drizzle the remaining liquid on top.
  5. Garnish with green onion and furikake for extra bite. Serve with rice.
