Directions

If fish is fresh, poach, let cool and debone (greatly increasing the cooking time). Otherwise, chop the veggies, remove the backbones from the canned mackerel (if necessary), then mix ingredients together. Edible immediately, but flavors blend best if left in refrigerator a couple of hours before serving. Herb amounts vary greatly due to taste and availability of fresh herbs. Remember to decrease amount to 1/3 if using dried herbs, and that seasoning can easily be added to taste but adjusting down is tough.
