I thank whoever started making Canned Mackerel. Such a wonderful food product, lasts long in the pantry, ready to use anytime, and absolutely versatile and delicious. Today I used it for Yakisoba, Japanese style stir-fried Noodles. Some people say Mackerel has strong fishy smell. I suggest to add some Curry Powder to it so that you won’t smell the fishy smell. This Yakisoba smells just good.
