Smoked Mackerel Pate

A's mom made this fantastic pate while we were visiting for the weekend so I got the recipe from her before returning home. The next weekend was a big party so I made an enormous triple batch of this - it went down well with crudites and breadsticks and crackers. If you like smoked mackerel, you will like this - just make sure when you're using the food processor that you really get all the fish blended in until smooth - it's much nicer without lumps.

Smoked Mackerel Pate


350g smoked mackerel
150g greek yogurt (I used Fage fat free)
1 tbsp horseradish sauce
juice of a lemon
black pepper


Place mackerel and yogurt in a food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer contents to a mixing bowl and add horseradish, lemon and pepper to taste. Chill. Serve with crackers, breadsticks, or crudites.
