Smoked-Mackerel-Pate-with-Greens

A really great way to enjoy this wonderful fish. Can also be eaten as a snack or starter with toast.

Ingredients

250 g Smoked Mackerel, skin removed

2 tbsp Natural Yoghurt

2-3 tsp creamed Horseradish

Juice of 1 Lemon

Seasoning

3 Spring onions, finely chopped

300 g Broccoli, cut into florets

300 g Asparagus Spears, woody ends trimmed

200 g Green Beans, trimmed and halved

1 tbsp Olive Oil

2 tbsp Sesame Seeds

Method

Flake the mackerel and place half in a food processor with the yoghurt, creamed horseradish, half the lemon juice and seasoning, and blitz until nearly smooth.

Stir in the remaining flaked mackerel and spring onions and place in the fridge to chill for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, blanch the broccoli, asparagus and green beans in boiling water for 4-5 minutes and then drain and plunge into cold water to stop the cooking and help to retain their fresh green colour.

Toss the cold vegetables with the remaining lemon juice, olive oil and sesame seeds and serve with the pate.
