Did you know that mackerel is the UK’s most commonly landed fish species, is integral to the Cornish fishing industry, and tastes amazing in a carbonara?
Here’s a Cornish twist on a classic dish which is easy to make at home and in large quantities – because sometimes you just can’t get enough! Cornish mackerel is mostly caught by small-scale, inshore handlining vessels which count on fine weather to be able to fish.
And yes, in real life, the sauce spills and the penne slides out the pan. It’s all part of the joys of home cooking, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
