This recipe is so unbelievably simple, taking only 10 minutes from start to finish. Which is good because once it’s made its guaranteed to disappear pretty quickly.

Ingredients

  • 3 smoked mackerel fillets
  • 150g cream cheese
  • Zest and juice of one lemon
  • Bunch of Parsley

To serve

  • 3 smoked mackerel fillets
  • 150g cream cheese
  • Zest and juice of one lemon
  • Bunch of Parsley
  • Sourdough bread
  • Rocket
  • Olive Oil
  • Red wine vinegar

Method

  • STEP 1
    Make sure all the bones are removed from the mackerel
  • STEP 2
    Remove the skin from the mackerel
  • STEP 3
    Place two of the mackerel fillets into a food processor, breaking into smaller pieces as you do
  • STEP 4
    Add the cream cheese, zest and juice of one lemon and parsley
  • STEP 5
    Pulse for around 20-30 seconds until you are left with a smooth pate
  • STEP 6
    Remove from the processor and flake through the remaining fish fillet
  • STEP 7
    Taste and test for seasoning. Some mackerel can be salty enough without adding any additional salt so it is all down to your personal preference.

  • STEP 9
    Serve with griddled sourdough
