Patagonia Provisions 'Lemon Caper Mackerel', Spain
Patagonia Provisions Lemon Caper Mackerel, Spain
Atlantic Mackerel, packed with organic lemon, capers and extra-virgin olive oil. Meaty yet bright-tasting, it’s a great pantry staple for adding to pasta and salads.
The seasonings are on the bottom, so flip the open can onto a plate to allow them to flow evenly over the fish.
Atlantic mackerel is the small fish with the mild flavor and big, meaty texture of a large fish. But there are many other reasons to give it a try. Unlike large apex predators like tuna and swordfish, these mackerel are small, schooling fish that occur in great abundance, providing a truly sustainable harvest. They're caught by hook and line, with little to no bycatch, by traditional fishing families in northern Spain. Since Atlantic mackerel are low on the ocean food chain, they don't have the high levels of mercury and other toxins that can concentrate in larger fish. And they are an excellent source of protein, vitamin B-12, and other essential nutrients, with 500 mg of Omega 3 fatty acids per serving.
