Uni-Pak Mackerel with Lemon Caper Butter Sauce Recipe + Giveaway (CLOSED)
As a SAHM of two, my chores at home never really gets done. I cook, I clean, I run errands.. always getting swamped with the daily hullabaloos. Buti na lang there are ready-to-eat and easy-to-cook food products that I can serve my family whenever I feel like doing shortcuts in the kitchen.
So just recently I received a Uni-Pak Mackerel gift pack and I was so excited to try cooking new dishes with it. 🙂

Mackerel and its Health Benefits
Did you know that eating Mackerel will boost your health? As an oily fish, it helps prevent heart disease, it is anti-carcinogenic, controls blood pressure levels, and it is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, protein, and vitamin D.
Uni-Pak Mackerel with Lemon Caper Butter Sauce
For my Uni-Pak Mackerel recipe, I only used 4 ingredients: mackerel, lemon, butter, and capers. The big can is super sulit, with big chunks of mackerel meat. Actually, Uni-Pak’s mackerel can be eaten as is kasi may spices na siya, but it’s also fun to experiment with all the yummy recipes you can come up with.
I have a leftover bottle of capers from my last Spanish Sardines Pasta meal so I’ve decided to use it for this dish. I started adding capers to my dishes after I tried Figaro’s Al Tonno Pasta. Its sharp and salty taste add interesting dimensions to any dish, especially when they’re pickled in vinegar.
This rich yet refreshing sauce is often paired with fish fillets, but my recipe turned out delish! 🙂 Try it!
- 425 g (15 oz) Uni-Pak Mackerel in Natural Oil
- 1 lemon (for lemon juice and lemon zest)
- 1 - 2 tbsp butter
- 1 - 2 tbsp capers
- A pinch of sugar
- A pinch of salt
