Easy Baked Mackerel Recipe

This recipe has only a handful key ingredients: mackeral fish fillets, olive oil, salt and pepper. The taste is great despite the minimal effort & ingredients.

Feel free to cook more fillets, just make sure they occupy one layer on the baking tray.


  • 2 mackerel (saba) fillets (if using frozen, thaw before use)
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • one small lime (halved) or 2 lemon wedges

Condiment (Serving Suggestion)

  • ponzu sauce
  • grated daikon (white radish)


  • pastry brush
  • baking tray
  • parchment paper


  1. Pull out any bones from the mackerel fillet using kitchen tweezers.
  2. Brush olive oil with a pastry brush over the mackerel skin. Season the fillet with salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
  3. Line baking tray with parchment paper for easy cleaning. Place mackerel fillets skin side up. Bake the fillets at preheated oven of 200°C (392°F) for about 20 minutes, or until the skin starts to brown & crisp. Serve with lime and a side condiment of grated daikon in a saucer of ponzu sauce.
