Mackerel Fillets in Muscadet Wine Sauce from Les Mouettes d'Arvor
Boneless Mackerel in White Wine with Mild Spices
These French mackerels are packed in a sauce of dry Muscadet white wine complemented with aromatics of lemon, onion, carrot, cornichons, salt and spices. Light and tart, with a somewhat pickled flavor, they are lovely atop a green salad, mixed with chopped vegetables to make a fish salad, or in any preparation where the white wine sauce can act as a vinaigrette. Also try French Mackerels in Mustard Sauce from Les Mouettes d'Arvor.
Les Mouettes d'Arvor ("the seagulls of Arvor") is the only remaining seafood cannery in the Breton town of Concarneau, one of France's largest fishing ports. Here, Jacques Gonidec and his team continue to do things the old fashioned way: The freshest mackerel from the North Sea and the English Channel is washed, plunged into an aromatic broth bath, cut, nestled into cans and packed with fragrant herbs and vegetables... all by hand.
