Cooking Baked Mackerel with Vegetables:
Step 1: prepare the mackerel.
If you have freshly frozen fish, then first you need to defrost it, letting it thaw on its own at room temperature. Then peel the mackerel and gut it, making a deep incision along the abdomen. Among other things, do not forget to remove the gills. Rinse the cleaned fish with cold water, washing it both from the inside and outside. Moisten mackerel with disposable paper towels, place on a cutting board, and cut into small portioned portions.
Pour all the spices into a deep plate and mix them well. Place the pieces of mackerel in the resulting marinade. After that, let the fish lie down for a while in this form, and while you are busy preparing the remaining ingredients.
Step 2: prepare the carrots.
Peel the carrots from the skin, then rinse the root vegetables with water, washing off the ground and other dirt. After peeling and washing, the vegetable must be chopped by passing it through a grater.
Step 3: prepare the onion.
Peel the bulbs just like you usually do. After chop the vegetables into small cubes.
Step 4: Cook the roast.
Put chopped onions and carrots in a frying pan vegetable oil. All the while stirring, cook the vegetable frying over medium heat until it acquires a light golden hue. Then the vegetables should be removed from the heat and wait until they cool slightly.
Step 5: prepare the tomatoes.
Rinse fresh tomatoes with warm water and pat dry with paper towels. Cut clean vegetables into large pieces, not forgetting to cut out the seal left in the place where the green tail used to be.
Step 6: bake mackerel with vegetables.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Meanwhile, put slices of mackerel lying in the marinade on the bottom of the baking dish, pour the carrots fried with onion over the fish and lay large pieces of tomato with the last layer. Cover all this beauty with foil and send in the oven to bake until fully cooked, that is, on 25-30 minutes. Once the right time has passed, remove the fish form from the oven, remove the foil and start serving the finished dish to the dinner table.
Step 7: serve the mackerel with vegetables.
Baked mackerel with vegetables is good both in hot form and in cold. Serve it as an independent dish, or in a compartment with a neutral side dish, for example, from boiled rice or potatoes.
That's all, it remains only to put pieces of mackerel into portions, set it on the table and enjoy its taste. And no one needs to call for dinner, as soon as you remove the foil from the baking dish, having released the stunning aroma of baked fish, everyone is already crowding at the door waiting.
