Today’s post is a recipe from my book Gluten-free Meals in Minutes
It is so unbelievably easy to prepare and tastes amazing! It would be a great make ahead starter for Christmas day. You can substitute the mackerel for salmon if you prefer.
4 smoked mackerel fillets
2 cloves of garlic – crushed
225g / 1 cup cream cheese
Juice of a lemon
2 tbsp fresh herbs chopped (I like parsley)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Sea salt and cayenne pepper to taste
Fresh chives, cucumber and gluten-free crackers to serve
- Break up the mackerel fillets and place in a food processor with the garlic, cream cheese and lemon juice.
- Blend the mixture for a few seconds then add the parsley. Blend again until it is almost smooth. Add the salt, cayenne and Worcestershire sauce to taste and blend to mix well.
- Pour the pate in to a dish and cover with cling film. Chill if you have the time.
- To serve garnish with the chopped chives and serve with my homemade crackers & sliced cucumber or gluten-free toast. Delish!!
