    Stuffing small boney fish with spuds rice etc equals mouthfuls of bones and mash.

    Life doesn’t really get much better than that. We did similar on Loe Beach, Restronguet, Turnaware Bar etc, although it was more about the cider back then. K was the drink of choice!

    Turnaware, always makes me think of the US soldiers loading onto LSTs, bound for Omaha Beach.

    Sorry, off topic.

    no fish. But that's why they call it fishing not catching. and there are always mackeral and garfish for easy sport.

    Good times.

    Perfect! Could do with some of that right now...

    Got some smoked mackerel in the fridge so will have to make do with the chowder. Once we get through this storm, I think people will start appreciating the simpler things in life.

    The Sainsbury's fillets I buy for her are previously frozen (but again freezable!) and she loves them.

    Too many 'n's for my liking.

    I really don't like mackerel unless in tins, and used to prefer tinned sardines anyway, though even those upset my stomach to a degree. Aware of its properties, I had one of my wife's baked Sainsbury's packaged fillets 2 days ago; didn't enjoy it, and despite have fruit, yogurt, chocolate and w.h.y. to cover up the aftertaste, it was still there hours later. My wife went back for another fillet! I'm also paranoid about fish bones (hence fillets).

    I'll stick to salmon as the only oily fish I know to be available; maybe there are others

    I like the idea of a chowder. Could make a book of this thread

    ....where everything is c.o.d. and is too small to go herring around at speed. Perched on a rock like Gaycha above, it's useful to be a dab hand with a rod. (Oh dear, I hope I haven't opened a can of worms here).

    Do you ever open the tin of mackerel, then heat it in the tin?

    Under the grill, or in the oven. Tastes a lot nicer than cold. I add a spread of mustard before shoving it in the oven. Whilst that is warming up, make the toast!

    Never done that but make a toastie with them. Lightly toast bread first, add cheese & Hendos, mackerel on top, cover with second slice of toast, wrap in tinfoil & put in over for 15-20 mins.

    Just had them with salad today though

    Sounds good, I will try that. What is Hendos?

    Henderson's Relish, made in Sheffield and similar to Worcester Sauce . Contains no anchovies.

    It is a Sheffield delicacy, a bit like Worcester sauce.
