Firstly, apologies to anybody who’s had problems accessing my blog this week. I’ve been keeping a bit of a low internet profile, so my blog’s been offline. It’s back up for the moment, but I will be temporarily taking it up and down over the next few weeks, so if you can’t get into it, don’t worry – normal service will be resumed soon.
Now, moving on, I recently made this super-simple and delicious pate, which is great on bread or toast, and was even good in a toasted sandwich with some sliced tomato – very versatile. We don’t eat enough fish in our house – I never think I’m very good or adventurous with cooking it, so tend not to do so – but this went down well with everybody.
200g cream cheese (I used a light version to make it a bit healthier)
2 tbsp horseradish sauce
1 tbsp lemon juice
150g smoked mackerel
Mix the cream cheese, horseradish and lemon juice thoroughly. Flake the smoked mackerel (I used the peppered variety), but if you use plain, you might want to add some black pepper to the mixture as well) and add. Chop the parsley finely, add and mix well.
Eat and enjoy!
