Mackerel and granny apple rillettes

Hello greedy friends

I suggest you taste delicious mackerel rillettes for a nice aperitif, to be enjoyed with slices of toasted bread

Mackerel is a fatty fish and its content of omega-3 fatty acids gives it undeniable health benefits. The full mackerel season runs from March to May, it's short, outside of these periods you can use canned mackerel


Preparation: 5 minutes
Serves 4
  • 150g canned mackerel fillets
  • 200g fresh cheese
  • 1/2 red or green pepper
  • 12 pitted green olives
  • 1 bunch of chives
  • 1 small red onion or new onion or shallot
Step 1
Peel and finely chop the red onion And drain the mackerel fillets. Pour them into a bowl and gently crush them with a fork

Step 2 

Add fresh cheese and red onion. Slice the olives into slices and add to the mixture.
Step 3
Chop the chives and add to the bowl. Rectify seasoning with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Film and place in the fridge for at least 6 hours. Serve with toast or slices of toast

You can take what you want in fresh cheese, for my part I took some
philadelphia, but St Morêt, fresh square go very well too
You can also make this rillette with fresh fish, you would have to cook your fish in a short-boiled

Food/wine pairings

To accompany these granny apple mackerel rillettes, I recommend a white Bandol from Provence or a white Beaujolais

Keep mackerel

In the refrigerator: As this oily fish is likely to deteriorate rapidly, it should be eaten on the day of purchase.
If not, place it on a bed of ice in an airtight container in the coldest part of the refrigerator.
In the freezer for a few months.
Whole mackerel are sometimes stored in a freezer bag filled with water, which would keep them in better condition
