hot smoked mackerel
I went for a dive here and set my little net, and didn't get a lot - but there was one yellow-tail scad - mackerel
They're common enough at this season - we get huge shoals feeding on the galaxias, with predatory fish feeding on mackerel beneath them - this isn't something I'd had within 40 feet of the shore in about 3 meters of water. typically a schooling fish, so I was surprised to get one.
I filleted and salted it.
Not too bad, really. Total cost half a cup of cous cous and a little salt.
