I've just had a quick Google around to no immediate avail so can anybody help?

My late Dad often used to cook soused mackerel but it is something I have neither tasted nor seen in years and years.

From memory it had mackerel sliced across its length, bone and all (no need to worry about them as they go soft and can be munched up), into chunks. Next came cheap as chips malt vinegar and pickling spices, cloves, bayleaf, some onion and garlic.

But that's all I remember apart from it was served cold from the fridge with bread and butter. Have I missed any ingredients and was it cooked (in terms of application of heat) or just pickled and served raw?

Any hints or advice gratefully received.

I did it to annoy the precious ones who give a toss about such things.

Or just plain got it wrong.

Or both.

Or neither.

You decide.
