- vegetable oil, salt, pepper to taste.
- Ingredients for the snack:

The process of cooking fish kebabs and snacks
Mackerel does not need to be completely thawed, so it is easier to cut it.
The head, offal and ridge are removed from her.
You need a clean boneless fillet. It is washed out and laid out on the dish, skin side down.
Then the dressing is prepared. To do this, put a couple of parsley branches, a few cloves of garlic in a blender, rub a little lemon zest, add 2-3 tablespoons of vegetable oil, as well as salt and pepper to taste.
The ingredients are crushed, then you need to pour the mackerel with the resulting marinade and grease each piece. The marinated fillets should be put in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
For such a kebab, a jalapeno pepper appetizer is well suited. They need to be cut in half and cleaned from the halves of the seeds. They are then filled with cream cheese.
The pepper and cheese halves are wrapped in bacon. You do not need to pin it with toothpicks, everything in the future will be held by the grill grate.
Pickled mackerel is rolled and skewered.
The pepper is placed on the grill. Both dishes are fried on charcoal quickly, about the same time, so that they can be laid out on the grill at the same time.
Pepper bacon and fish are golden brown or more if you like. When tasting with a snack, you need to be careful, as it is quite spicy.
