Agree with Sean and Johnnyboy. I adore mackerel, but, unless it is straight off the boat, it does need acidity or heat (Nigel Slater has a great recipe involving lemon, garlic and smoked paprika).

Try mackerel fillets topped with finely chopped chillies and grated cheese. Gorgeous!

Hoping to escape this machine some time in the not-too-distant future and get cooking...

What's the only London tube station that doesn't have any of the letters from the word Mackerel in it? You aren't allowed to answer if you've ever lived in London.

No report from BA. Has he choked on a bone?

I've neither choked on a bone nor do I know the answer to the above query

On this occasion I decided to ignore the advice of The Food Gods and not add something tangy/acidic - and went with the recipe as was. It was good, very good - but I do take the point about the acidity now. I just wanted to try it for myself first. Plus, I could have done with chopping the apricots a touch finer.

I'll stick up the recipe later.

Is there a Northwood? I know there is a place called Northwood, but isn't the station Northwood Hills or something?
