Preheat your oven to 180 °C / 360 °F.
Clean and wash the mackerel. On one side of the fish make 5 cuts, larger from the head and smaller to the tail.

Finely dice parsley and put it into a small bowl. Cut the onion into halves, slice one half and choose two slices matching the cuts in the mackerel, finely dice the remaining and add to the parsley. Mash fresh garlic using a garlic press or grate it with a microplane and add to the same bowl. Finely add 1 teaspoon of lemon zest.

Add lemon juice from a half of lemon, salt and pepper to the stuffing and mix all the ingredients trying to mash them.

Transfer the mackerel into a backing pan/ sheet on a piece of aluminium foil. Stuff the fish wit the prepared mix pressing it inside with a fork. Stuff it all in, don’t get confused, otherwise you will regret afterwards all the delicious mix got shrunk and disappeared while cooking.

Cut the lemon into two halves and slice three pieces of lemon for the fish cuts. Put onion slices and lemon slices into the cuts.

Pour lemon juice from one and a half lemon over the fish and cover it with a foil.
Bake for 30 minutes if you use baking tray, 35 minutes using glass pan.
Enjoy!
