Simple Pan-Fried Norwegian Blue Mackerel with Apple Sauce


by: simply beautiful and healthy living

Besides Salmon, Norwegian Blue Mackerel is also our most favorite fish. It's yummy even just with a simple pan fried and seasoned with some soy sauce. A simple dish like this can see my children grinning like a Cheshire cat!! However, once in a while if I am not in a hurry or if an inspiration struck me on the spur of the moment, I would try something different, ie pan fried it with pandan leaves. This time, while I was about to start frying the blue mackerel, I realized that I still have a bottle of apple sauce sitting in the pantry. Oh yeah.... why not try something different? So, the end result? All thumbs up from my family members!!! Do give this a try and you will thank me for it too!

2.  2) Pan fry over medium low heat until both sides are slightly brown.

3.  3) Turn off the heat.

4.  4) Drizzle some Worcester sauce on both sides of the fillet.

5.  5) Then, spread some apple sauce on top of the fillets. Remember to pan fry the fish with the heat off to prevent the sauce from burning.

6.  6) Dish up and serve.

Cooks' note:
Notice that there are some burnt on the skin? So, it's very important to remember to turn off the heat before you drizzle the Worcester sauce and the apple sauce. Mine is still slightly burnt even though I had turn off the heat!! Some slight burnt is perfectly okay as it has that smoky fragrant flavor. The skin is crispy too :) Besides, the slightly smoky with a tangy sweet apple sauce flavor is simply yummy!
