Saurel, horse mackeral or scad in English is in abundance in Algeria, Mediterranean and in the Atlantic. While this fish is widely used in sushi bars around the world, here in Algeria it's practically overlooked, nappreciated and under estimated fish.
This blue oily fish is curved in the middle and covered over its entire length of a row of bony plates, spiny on the back. The head is large, the first spiny dorsal fin, the second elongated, the tail slightly forked.
Unfortunately here in Algeria, it is many times overlooked amoung all the other small fishes like the sardine and anchovy. Quite a shame, I think. They are ideal for frying, making fish boulettes but also for tadjines or tray bakes.
Here's one simple yet worthy of this noble little fish.
