Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and cracked black pepper - was fantastic as a dip and on toast!

When i was in year 5 (i am in year 7 now) a fish lady came to our school. And at the end of our session with her she gave us a small amount of the dip 1 mini carrot and 1 mini bread stick and i thought it was great my m8 did not like hers so i had it. Ever since then i have wanted to make it so 2morrow i am gonna make it hopfully it will be

Definitely benefitted from a squeeze of lemon juice and swapped the soured cream with no fat Greek yoghurt. Then used it to fill toasted pita bread with plenty of watercress. Yummy.

I used smoked peppered Mackerel instead of just smoked and added a bit of freshly squeezed lemon juice and extra pepper. Instead of soured cream I used half fat creme fresh. I served some on some rye crackers. Tomorrow I shall take it to work in a ciabatta with a green leaf salad.

I do a lot of cooking, but cannot eat dairy (except goat cheese) following E.Coli infection. It would be great to have ideas on making stuff like this which is lactose-free.....

Made this ages ago and loved it. So did the kids.

Enjoyed this as a spread on crisp bread. Used low fat greek yogurt instead as that was all I had. Will be making again.

Enjoyed this as a lunch time snack at work but preferred the recipe made with creme fraiche
