MA’CKEREL. n.s. [mackereel, Dutch; maquereau, French.] A
Some fish are gutted, split, and kept in pickle; as whiting
and mackerel. Carew’s Survey of Cornwall.
Law ordered that the Sunday should have rest;
And that no nymph her noisy food should sell,
Except it were new milk or mackarel. King’s Art of Cookery.
Sooner shall cats disport in water clear,
And speckled mackrels graze the meadows fair,
Than I forget my shepherds wonted love. Gay’s Pastorals.
