A kipper is a more usually a fillet
of smoked mackerel
with its shiny skin left on. It is smoked
until its flesh is a golden brown. In England
, kippers are usually served with a garnish of coarsely ground pepper
. It’s a strong tasting oily fish, traditionally eaten at breakfast
. I think it goes particularly well with scrambled eggs
Although it’s an archaic term: when you have two fillets (i.e. both halves of the fish) that can be called a “brace of kippers”.
