Oven backed mackerel with tomatoes

Today I am giving you an idea for a fish recipe for the occasion of the coming Saint Nicholas Day. It is not the traditional stuffed carp, but it is traditionally Bulgarian and incredibly delicious. And fast;)

I wish you a nice and happy holiday to everyone – both all the celebrating with these beautiful names and the people around who love them! 🙂
