The humble mackerel is an extremely delicious and sadly underrated fish. In this recipe, it is baked with garlic, white wine, and tomatoes, which lifts the fish out of its Atlantic image and turns it into a dish with a strong Mediterranean flavor. Any oily or white fish works very well cooked in this way, generically known, with a few variations to the basic format of the recipe as all’lsolana.
The same combination of ingredients can be used to cook other fish fillets or even shrimp, and I have even used it to prepare mussels with great success.
