Splendid mackerel in tomato. Step by step recipe

  1. To prepare the tomato marinade, we need a saucepan (for this I use a small saucepan, but you can take a stewpan).
  2. Pour water into the prepared pan (according to the recipe) and send it to the stove.
  3. Pour salt into a saucepan with water (one teaspoon without a hill), sugar, add a little black pepper, cloves, black peppercorns and bay leaf.
  4. The contents of the pan are brought to a boil and after the water boils, let it boil for a few more minutes.
  5. Then we send tomato sauce to the pan, mix well and bring the contents of the pan back to a boil.
  6. Tip: during the preparation of the marinade for a great mackerel, instead of tomato sauce, you can use ketchup.
  7. As soon as the tomato in the pan begins to boil, add 1.5 tablespoons of vinegar (for tomato marinade we use 9% vinegar), and mix everything again.
  8. Tip: if you add ketchup rather than tomato sauce, you may need less vinegar.
  9. Let the tomato boil over medium heat for a couple of minutes.
  10. Now we add vegetable oil to the tomato, mix and let it boil again for several minutes. Ready tomato marinade for a great mackerel, remove from heat and leave to cool.
  11. Onions (I used medium-sized onions) are peeled, washed and cut into half rings.
  12. Two freshly frozen mackerels, remove the peel from them and clean the middle. Mackerel will be well cleaned if it does not completely melt.
  13. Tip: Instead of mackerel, you can use fresh-frozen herring, but the mackerel is much tastier.
  14. Cut the prepared mackerel into portioned slices, and then cut each piece of fish in half and remove the bone from the inside.
  15. To pickle mackerel in tomato, we need a container with a lid (I use a deep food tray with a lid).
  16. In the prepared tray, put half the onion cut in half rings, put the whole fish on the onion and on top - a layer of onion.
  17. Pour the entire contents of the tray with a tomato marinade (the marinade should not be hot, but a little warm) and cover tightly with a lid.
  18. We leave the fish in the marinade for at least six hours, and it is best to leave it overnight.
