Method

  1. Gently mix the mackerel flakes with the crème fraîche, lemon juice, half the herbs and some pepper (but no salt – smoked mackerel is salty enough). Chill until ready to serve.
  2. Spoon a generous amount of the mixture into each leaf, then arrange on plates. Sprinkle each ‘scoop’ with the remaining fresh herbs and a pinch of the lemon zest, then serve.

Very easy to do and tasty. Went down very well on New Years Eve.

Really tasty and easy. Got daughter Amy to do it all in food processor (no cuts or lost fingers and a smoother paste) then serve it up proudly to her Dad. We left out the chives but still tasted great.
