Smoked Mackerel Patè {Gluten-free}

Smoked mackerel pate and  crisp bread with cucumber

Hey guys,

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.

Ingredients:

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

Method

  1. Break up the mackerel fillets and place in a food processor with the garlic, cream cheese and lemon juice.
  2. 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.
  3. Pour the pate in to a dish and cover with cling film. Chill if you have the time.
  4. To serve garnish with the chopped chives and serve with my homemade crackers & sliced cucumber or gluten-free toast. Delish!!

Hello! Yes you read that right I AM BACK!  🙂

I cannot believe it has been almost 7 months since I last posted here, where is the time going?!!

I do have a treat for today! It is Wednesday so What I ate Wednesday is here and I will have the yummy recipe from my dinner of Homemade pork, apple and sage sausages served with sweet potato rosti, petit pois and red onion gravy up for you tomorrow. They are easy to make, healthy (as I used pork medallions and whizzed them up in to mince myself) and so versatile – you can add whatever you fancy.

So, lets get started!!

Breakfast was a homemade ‘flapjack’ / granola bar – no oats though, and a banana.

Lunch was a Tuna Salad with a drizzle of balsamic reduction
