Smoked Mackerel Pate
For someone who wasn't even going to buy Jamie's latest book 'Ministry of Food', I'm cooking from it an awful lot.
Its punchy, smokey and delicious and well worth the few minutes it takes to prepare. Next time I may try using smoked trout.
Ingredients (serves 4):
400g Smoked Mackerel Fillets
200g Cream Cheese
Zest of 2 Lemons
4 Spring Onions, finely chopped
2 TBSP Creamed Horseradish
Cress and toasted bread to serve
Step 1: Whizz all ingredients in a food processor (probably best to do in 2 batches - I nearly burnt the motor out doing this!) or alternatively just chop up the mackerel and spring onions and stir into the other ingredients for a coarser pate.
