Very often, fish cooked at home is tried in just a few hours. I do not recommend doing this, be sure to stand it for 3 days. The mackerel will be saturated with brine. The taste will be spicy and moderately salty.

How to cook "Salted mackerel at home"
Prepare the required ingredients. Wash the mackerel, cut off the head, clean the insides. Remove black films (from them bitterness). Dry with a paper towel. Cut into pieces of the desired size.
Take a 0.7 liter jar, put the spices in it, after rubbing them in your hands. Add salt. Fill in 100 ml. steep boiling water. Stir and cool to room temperature.
Add the remaining water to the cooled part, stir. Fold the fish pieces together. Close the lid. Refrigerate for 3 days.
After the time has passed, the mackerel is ready. It is best served with onions, herbs and lemon. Enjoy your meal!
