Looking for more easy mackerel recipes??

If so, I got you covered in this recipe.

Mackerel is a very popular fish in Japan, but some people are picky on the mackerel since it has a strong fishy smell.

With this curry mackerel recipe, you won't sense fishy smell that much.

The grated ginger will help to reduce the smell of mackerel and the curry spices will eliminate it even more.

The recipe is simple, but pretty addictive.

I hope anyone who loves fish or not will equally enjoy this recipe!

BTW, I have another fish recipe here!



<Yield> 2 servings

<Prep time> 5 mins ( not including time for marinate)

<Cook time> 7 mins


3 mackerel fillets ( 1 whole mackerel)


1 tsp of rice wine without MSG and salt

1 tbsp of soy sauce

1 tsp of grated ginger


2 tbsp of mayonnaise without MSG

1 tsp of curry powder ( add more to your liking)

1 cup of panko

<Optional toppings>


leafy greens



1: Chop each slice of mackerel into 4 pieces. Marinate mackerel with rice wine, soy sauce and grated ginger. Leave them for 10mins. Drain the excess moisture.

2: Mix mayo and curry powder. Coat mackerel with it. Switch onto the panko and coat all the surface evenly.]

3; Pan fry them over low-mid heat for 4 -5mins and flip. Cook them for another 3mins. Transfer onto the plate. Garnish some leafy greens if you want to.

<Miwa's tips>

・If you want it to be spicier, you can add more curry powder.

・When you pan fry the mackerel, you don't have to grease the pan since the oil of mayo seep out to the pan. However, if it starts to stick on your pan, feel free to add oil. Please cook over low-mid heat as it's burnt easily.

you got to have nice and golden color on panko.

・Mackerel tends to have quite a lot of small bones. Make sure to remove everything before you cook.

・Any other kind of fish like salmon will work in this recipe!
