When you say minced ground pepper, do you mean crushed red pepper?

The recipe sounds delicious, but I don’t know where we would get horse mackerel here.

Depending on where you live Laurie, you would find it in the frozen food section.

The real question is where can Americans living in the United States even find horse Mackerel?

Hi Mike, I am sure you can get it from Portuguese stores if you live in highly populated Portuguese areas, we buy them frozen all the time here in Canada.
