Soak mackerel over night in cold water, with the skin side up, that the salt may be drawn out, change the water often, and less time is required. Drain. Place mackerel in shallow kettle, pour water over to cover and boil 10 to 15 minutes or until flesh separates from the hone. Remove to platter and pour hot melted butter over and serve with hot potatoes.

They may also be boiled and served with a White Sauce.
