Method

  1. Mix together the cottage cheese, horseradish and soured cream, and leave to sit for 10 mins.
  2. Remove skin and any bones from the mackerel, break into thumb-sized pieces and pop into a food processor. Pulse briefly to break up the chunks; it shouldn’t be too fine. Turn out into a large bowl.
  3. Mix the chives into the mackerel evenly, then fold in the cream mixture and lemon juice. Chill in the fridge for 20 mins.
  4. To serve, spoon some mackerel mix into each chicory leaf. Arrange on a large plate with lemon halves and serve with some drinks.

Had this for a starter Xmas day along with thai melon (Good Housekeeping). This was fantastic, flavoursome and light enough to tantalise the taste buds but not spoil the dinner. My friend is making it for New Years Eve.

Easy to make, scrumptious to eat, I am making them again as a canapé starter on Xmas day.
