Anniversary Mackerel Dinner… Who knew it would be so yummy!!

Im excited to say today Ryan and I celebrated our 19th wedding Anniversary!! It was wild and crazy!! We went on a 2 1/2 hr chartered fishing adventure as a family!! We brought home 19 Mackerel, and caught more than that and some small Pollock!! We had an amazing time despite the swells in the ocean and wind…. and the best part was the wonderful memories and the delicious meal we had tonight!!

Mackerel Is often a fish used for bait, but did you know it make a delicious meal! Thanks Captain Ben for the helpful hint of KristenKCharters, S. Portland Maine!!



I seasoned the fish with olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/2  a lime,  1/4 tsp (dash of chili powder) , 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp onion powder. 1/2 onion cut in half… 2 garlic cloves left whole…. fish and veggies were grilled on a wood pellet grill, 350 for 10 min per side….the white rice was made according to package directions and cilantro was added .. sprinkle with soy sauce and it’s delicious!! A dab of butter was added to the bag of frozen veggies  (or as an alternative, olive oil). Simply delicious!!  I hope to have more time to give exact recipes soon 🙂 thanks so much for following along and reading tonight.. sleep well!! I know we will… fishing can be hard work, especially if your jigging!! Lol!!


Im a mother, blogger and have come to enjoy the wonderful outdoors living in Maine for over 20 yrs!! Its been a whirlwind of change and never ending projects at our homes that helped me see the need to be physically active and work towards healthy eating, and a balanced mind!! My passion in life is inspiring others to make good changes, besides getting out and exercising what has helped me is the bible and its message of hope :) My Blog is all about the many projects in life we have, the good eats-food (vegetarian, and vegan included) that im cooking up in the kitchen, and the gorgeous nature inspiration: all of which helps me feel happy!! I love sharing with you!! follow along & be inspired!!
