Try this delicious Mackerel Dip.
Mackerel, when mentioning this traditional Chilean fish it’s impossible not to recall the famous marketing strategy during the ’80s when to the company advertised it as “salmon mackerel” to make it sound elegant. In Chile, the mackerel had a reputation as a fish for the poor, but not anymore, now mackerel is well regarded and not cheap. Mackerel is very tasty, and my grandmother used to mix it with chopped tomatoes and a little Mayo for the perfect salad or for stuffed avocado.
