What to Use Smoked Mackerel in?

DH and guys went fishing and caught snapper, grouper and mackerel. They smoked the mackerel and I wanted something different to do with it. I'm tired of fish salad. Any ideas?

When you say fish salad, are you talking about something like smoked fish dip/spread? Wonder if you could substitute the smoked mackerel for smoked salmon in a savory cheese cake.

What coast are you on/near? I'm south east coast.

I've only made sweet chesecake before but I'm game. I have some American "neufchatel cheese". Can it be a sub for cream cheese? I live in northwest Florida near Pensacola so the mackerel came from the Gulf of Mexico. It might be a little different from the type you get down there.

I reckon you could use it in a soup or chowder. I have done that with all manner of fish. It might work well in a gumbo as well.
A somewhat less sophisticated, but tasty (IMHO) way to use some of it might be lightly fried fish cakes.

Another idea that just occurred to me is scrambled eggs mixed with some of the mackerel.
Hmm.....

A thick slice of really dark and healthy home made bread with butter and smoked mackerel is really good.

I also bet it would be real tasty to throw it in a pan with cream, white wine, herbs, cherry tomatoes and green onions too. Potatoes on the side.

I love smoked mackerel. I have, on occasion, managed to get it onto a sandwich. Usually I just start nibbling and the next thing I know it's gone.

Smoked mackerel pate is divine, just whizz it up with cream cheese, lemon juice, some chopped capers et voila.
