I must be missing the broiling part here, or there's a language failure somewhere along the way.

Since there is water in a saucepan, I think the author means simmer instead of broil. :)

About

This dish is better than sardines preserves, it contains a lot of important components for a healthy diet. Mackerel is a great source of protein and minerals, such as magnesium (21 percent of daily value), phosphorus (24 percent of daily value) and especially selenium (71 percent of daily value). Remembering all this, you shouldn't also forget that mackerel contains a significant number of calories due to a high protein and fat content.
