    I have been eating tinned mackerel or sardines or tuna on toast in the evening now for a while but I thought I didnt really like sardines and i thought I would switch to fresh mackerel as sainsburys basic smoked mackerel fillets seem to be roughly the same price per 100g

    Only thing is that sainsburys basic has the calorie count at over 300kcals per 100g whereas the tins are on about 150kcals, would this just be due to the skin?

    What do you guys prefer to have: Tinned fish or a generic 'basic supermarket brand' smoked fillet,

    I might possibly move up to normal sainsburys mackerel smoked fillets depending on price, I would think taste the difference is a bit out of range though lol

    perhaps yes, as the skin is fats mainly, otherwise could be oil content inside or something, smoked sounds nicer though.

    Have a mix of the two, I always have smoked fillets for cookin, tinned for quick eating, I guess have the more expensive one for tea so you can enjoy them hot, although they aren't expensive anyway! I agree with khris that it's likely less skin in the tin making it less calories, would be a bit strange if not?!
