Smoked Mackerel Pate

This is a very simple but delicious, no faff recipe for Smoked Mackerel Pate that really lets the flavour shine through. You can substitute the mackerel for hot smoked salmon or even kippers. Delicious on hot buttered toast, oatcakes or any kind of cracker. Fantastic for a light snack or when you are feeling peckish.

200g smoked mackerel

80g of full cream cheese

1tsp of horseradish sauce

Whiff of white pepper

Little squeeze of lemon

Some chopped dill or chives (optional)

Put the fish into a food processor and pulse gently. If you don’t have a processor you can just flake the fish. Add the cream cheese horseradish, lemon and pepper blitz for a moment.

The pate can be put into ramekins for a starter or put into a tupperware box in the fridge. It will last up to 3 days in the fridge if you haven’t eaten it all by then.
