Home Recipes Mackerel patties

I found a can of mackerel in the pantry shelf the other day. I usually use it to make a spicy fish stew to serve over rice, but this time I wanted to try something different. Here’s a recipe for some mackerel patties.


  • 15 oz can of mackerel, drained
  • 1/2 cup whole grain cereal, blended (I used Kelloggs All-bran Bran buds cereal. Since the pieces are already really small, I loosely blended the cereal and ended up with some crumbs and some whole pieces.)
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 3 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp horseradish
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Flake mackerel with their bones into a large bowl.
  2. Add cereal, breadcrumbs, egg, onion, garlic, walnuts, horseradish, salt and pepper.
  3. Mix with hands and form into 4-5 patties.
  4. Broil mackerel patties on high in baking dish with rack in middle of the oven for about 5-7 minutes on each side.

These mackerel patties came out delicious and were so easy to make. The cereal gives it an extra crunchiness. I can eat them on its own, slice it up and add it to a salad, or simply put it into a sandwich or burger. It goes well with a little dijonnaise.
