  • 8oz smoked mackerel
  • 5oz greek yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tsp horseradish sauce
  • 2 tsp chopped parsley
  • Black pepper to taste

This is a lovely fresh pâté and very easy to make. It's made a bit more interesting by the horseradish sauce - buy the best quality you can afford, or even better make your own. This makes enough to serve about 6 people.

Prep: 10 mins Cook: Serves: 6


  1. Remove the skin and bones from fish and flake.

  2. Add all the other ingredients and mix until well blended.

  3. Spoon into ramekins, cover with cling film and chill until required.

Eat smothered on hot toast.

Just worked out how to print off the recipes, going to give the Mushroom soup and the Pate a try this weekend.

Let us know how you get on! (I need to improve the printing from the site, it's on the to-do list.)

Made the Pate, thought I would surprise my wife with it, surprised her alright, I put 3 tablespoons of Horseradish (and a bit for luck) instead of 3 teaspoons but it still tastes ok, going to try again this weekend, under supervision of course!!

LOL, that would certainly have a kick!

I made venison liver pâté last week, will add the recipe to the site over the weekend in case you fancy something a bit meatier.
