Extraordinary Flavour and Texture
When it comes to flavour and texture, hot smoked mackerel is nothing short of extraordinary. It’s a completely new canned seafood experience that’s sophisticated, making a snack or appetizer that’s sure to impress. Using a combination of heat and smoke to cure this delicate cold-water fish, we infused it with complex smoky flavour. Then, we used three distinctive blends of oils, botanicals and spices to complement the smokiness and weave perfectly balanced flavours. We only use clean, natural ingredients to create these blends, so you can feel good about what you’re eating. The hot smoked method of curing mackerel also helps to preserve a firmer texture. Bathed in rich oils, you’ll find that all three flavours are irresistibly silky too.

We’ve never been shy about the unique health benefits of eating mackerel, but if you missed our past post on the topic, let’s refresh. For starters, when compared pound for pound, mackerel contains more omega-3 fatty acids than any other fish. In fact, you’ll get at least 2.7 grams of omega-3s in each can of our new hot smoked mackerel. These healthy fats are an important part of a balanced diet and have been linked to decreased inflammation and better heart health.
Of course, mackerel is also an excellent source of protein with as much as 15 grams in each can of this new hot smoked mackerel. That protein goes a long way to fuel your body and keep you satisfied. More than that, it’s an essential macronutrient necessary for many functions in the body.
