Smoked Mackerel Paté


This week I’m sharing one of my really quick, go to recipes when I’m looking for a speedy, healthy lunch to feed the family. Serve it with toasted wholemeal pitta, or oat cakes, served with a pile of sliced cucumber and watercress. If you keep a bowl in the fridge, you can also sneak a snack on a chunk of cucumber to satisfy the mid morning munchies!! It’s great for picnics too!

Packed full of omega 3 fatty acids, mackerel is a great food to include regularly in the diet. Omega 3 fatty acids help the body produce its own anti-inflammatory response. Great for helping to keep heart and circulation system healthy as well as maintaining cell membrane function.


Serves about 4


230g packet smoked mackerel fillets

2-3tbsp live probiotic natural yogurt

about 1tsp creamed horseradish

juice of 1 lemon, about 2tbsp

salt and black pepper

Remove the skin from the mackerel and place in a food processor with the remaining ingredients and plenty of seasoning. If you love horseradish, I’d add an extra 1/2tsp! Using the pulse feature on the food processor, gradually blend until combined. Check the seasoning and its ready to serve!
