This month’s recipe:

One of the many delights of the season is fresh mackerel. This oily fish works wonderfully in salads, pasta dishes or simply barbequed. With the benefits of mackerel including fortifying the immune system, improving the condition of blood and improved cellular health, there really isn’t any reason not to tuck in.

When buying fresh mackerel look out for firm, shiny bodies and clear, bright eyes if sold with the heads on.
