Lime & Mustard Mackerel Pate

good, but pungent

This is a variant on my classic smoked mackerel pate.

It was just so delicious, I had to give it another go.

The new, tarted-up version, has a citrus-y zing and a bit of a kick from the mustard.

It’s salty, sour and very very moreish.

So moreish that I ran out of corn crackers to smear it on and was reducing to scooping it up with lettuce leaves.

Lime & Mustard Mackerel Pate (makes one generous cup full)

  • 2 smoked mackerel fillets
  • 1 1/2 tbsps sour cream
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  1. Flake the mackerel from its skin and break into pieces.
  2. Stir in the sour cream, lime juice and mustard. Mix thoroughly until it forms a paste. Refridgerate until needed.
