Smoked Mackerel Pâté is super tasty and healthy and great as a spread or a dip! Made with fresh smoked mackerel, cream cheese, horseradish sauce and lemon juice, you’ll be making this again and again!
I’m always trying to make sure my family gets a weekly dose or two of oily fish as they are said to help protect against cardiovascular disease, prostate cancer, age-related vision loss and dementia.
Oily fish are a good source of vitamin D, protein, some B vitamins and selenium. They’re also a rich source of omega-3, a type of fat good for our health. So when I saw a packet of smoked mackerel on my last shopping trip I got the urge to make some smoked mackerel pâté.
We had our pâté with some wholemeal pittas and cucumber but it would also be great served as a dip with crudités, bread sticks or my Chia & Sesame Seed Crackers.
