     I saw Mackerel in the store, but have never prepared it and am curious. What does it taste like?

    It's a lot 'fishier' tasting than salmon. I much prefer salmon but mackerel is cheaper.

     So it isn't that fishy if you can make 'salmon' patties with it. You don't soak it in milk to remove the fishy flavor do you?
