One large King can really make your day, not just on the water, but also back home at the dinner table. There are endless King Mackerel recipes and every angler has a favorite; ours are below.

Grilled King Mackerel Steaks

Yield: 6 servings

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 lemons, sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 King Mackerel steaks, 1 1/2 inches thick

1. Light grill, set to medium heat, cover surface with aluminum foil

2. Rub all sides of each steak with olive oil, rub salt, pepper, and garlic onto the top and bottom of each steak.

3. Place steaks onto aluminum foil, cover each with lemon slices.

4. Cook 5 minutes, remove lemon slices, flip, place lemon slices back on top.

Broiled King Mackerel with Zesty Dressing

Yield: 4 servings

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 TBSP grapefruit juice
  • 2 TBSP lime juice
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 TBSP chopped fresh chives
  • 2 pounds king mackerel fillets
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

1. In a small bowl, combine the oil, grapefruit juice, lime juice, 1/4 tsp of the salt, and 1 TBSP of the chives.

2. Put the fish, skin-side down, in a shallow glass dish or stainless-steel pan. Scatter the onion over the fish. Pour half of the citrus dressing over the top; let marinate for about 15 minutes.

3. Heat the broiler. Put the fish, skin-side down, on a broiler pan or baking sheet. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 tsp salt and the pepper. Top with the onion. Broil the fish, about 6 inches from the heat if possible, until just done, about 5 minutes for 3/4-inch-thick fillets.

4. Pour the remaining dressing over the hot fish and sprinkle with the remaining TBSP of the chives.
