3 oz of meat or fish is about the size of a deck of cards.

that's why it's so great when you can go by weight, because then you're sure.

I'd guess, when it says fillet, it just means one.

Ah, the very vague "serving". Usually, a "serving" of a protein food such as fish or chicken or whatever, is 3 oz. If you search for "mackerel" in the Nutrition Tracker, it will give you the USDA entry for mackerel. Includes the choices of "serving" or "oz." or "grams". The user-entered entries under "fillet of mackerel" usually just say "serving"-- they *might* have been referring to one fillet or maybe 3 ounces or maybe... who knows. Personally I'd use the USDA "mackerel" entry, and weigh my slab of fish.

sorry if this sounds daft, but is a fillet of fish just the one piece or 2 in a serving? i have this horrible feeling i am doing this wrong emoticon
