Smoked Mackerel Paté
This is such a simple, satisfying and tasty dish which works as well as a starter, the centre piece of a salad, or for guests to nibble as they're having a drink. The oily fish is a great source of omega 3 fats and protein too, with the cream cheese clicking your calcium quota for the day too. Don't forget the horseradish!

All you need is:
1 pack of peppered smoked mackerel fillets
2 tbsps cream cheese or Labneh
the juice of half a lemon, save the other half to garnish
1 heaped tsp horseradish sauce
parsley to garnish
Simply combine all the ingredients in a bowl - leaving it quite chunky or making it super smooth as you wish. Check the seasoning and add a little more black pepper or lemon juice. Garnish with parsley. Keeps in the fridge for several days. Delicious.
