Mackerel Pâté

Today I’m sharing a very simple quick recipe for mackerel pâté, that you can make in literally minutes. I love this for a light lunch either on toast, crackers or in a sandwich. Plus it also works as a starter, if you’re entertaining.

Voilà. As I said, so quick and easy. And delicious too.

I’d love to hear your go-to recipes when you want something in a hurry?

Now all I need to do, is find where to buy my mackerel plastic free, as I’m trying to reduce my use of plastic. I get the yoghurt in jars from milk&more. The local fishmonger occasionally has plastic free mackerel, but unfortunately not very often.
