How to Cook Fried Mackerel and Poached Egg on Toast

  1. Place the mackerel fillets on a wooden board skin-side up.
  2. Superficially score the skin of the fish.
  3. Season it with olive oil, salt, and pepper on both sides.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  5. Place the fish in the skillet, skin side up.
  6. Cook it for 3-4 minutes on each side, turning it only once in the process.
  7. In a separate skillet, toast the bread slice for 2 minutes per side, until golden and crispy.
  8. Heat a saucepan over medium heat and fill it with water.
  9. Crack the egg and gently pour it in the saucepan.
  10. Use a spoon and create a gentle whirlpool that will help the egg white wrap around the yolk.
  11. Cook the egg for about 2 minutes (really soft egg) to 4 minutes (soft to firm one).
  12. Remove the egg with a slotted spoon.
  13. Now for serving, place the toast bread on a plate. Top it with both of the mackerel fillets, 1 poached egg, and garnish with chives.
