Smoked Mackerel Pate

This is such a simple recipe with only a handful of ingredients and yet the result is an extremely tasty pate. Perfect as a starter served on oatcakes.

Ingredients:

  • Remove all skin and bones from the mackerel fillets. Break up the fillets into pieces and place in a mixing bowl. Add the soft cheese, chives and lemon juice and mix thoroughly. Chill for at least an hour. When ready to serve, spoon the pate into individual ramekin dishes. Garnish with a few extra chives and serve with Deans Cocktail Oatcakes.
