Stuffed Mackerel

Stacy's mom can get mackerel by the bucket in New England and she made this for us one trip up there. We had to come home and make it almost immediately. The recipe I'm transcribing is on a 2 inch by 2 inch post it note with arrows and circles all over it. It's a wonder I can decipher it at all. It would work in any oily, whole fish. --Mark


onion, chopped
garlic, minced
crushed red pepper
olive oil
3 T tomato sauce, baby clams
bread crumbs or stale bread


Saute onion and garlic in olive oil. Add red pepper and heat through. Add baby clams (drained) but save the liquid on the side. Once the clams are heated, add the tomato sauce and heat.

Moisten bread crumbs or bred with clam juice and water as necessary. Mix with mixture from above. Stuff fish.

Place fish in an oiled baking dish. Bake at 350 for about 3o minutes until flaky.
