Here we are, finally the end of term and the very first day of Summer holidays! Unfortunately, it rained and rained a lot! 🙁 It’s been such a crazy week here due to some house renovations I won’t bore you with and all I needed today for me and my boys was some sunshine. Anyway… that’s enough of my moaning.
To cut the long story short, I haven’t really had much time to focus on food or blogging for that matter during the past week as I’ve been spending my evenings covered in dust and paint. We are almost there now though and I felt it was ok to take an evening off for a bit of blogging, hence my quick recipe for delicious Smoked Mackerel & Horseradish Pâté.
The recipe I’m sharing with you today is super simple yet so delicious. I am a big fan of spreads and pastes as sandwich fillings but also as a moreish addition to an oatcake or a cracker. My Smoked Mackerel & Horseradish Pâté is one of those spreads. It’s quick and easy to prepare so you can enjoy it in no time. Do I need to mention its obvious health benefits related to Omega-3s? I don’t claim, however, it’s a super healthy snack as it does contain full fat mayo which you can always substitute with lower fat version or perhaps with half mayo half natural yoghurt.
If you’ve taken a look at my blog before and perhaps browsed through other recipes you might have come across at smoked mackerel and horseradish flavour combination before in my Smoked Mackerel Quiche with Horseradish It is such a perfect marriage of flavours and as you can tell something I really, really like. 😉 My recipe calls for a tablespoon of horseradish which lets its flavour come through gently without too much heat. Feel free to adjust the quantity if you prefer things a bit more spicy!
This spread is super portable and doesn’t take much space in your picnic basket packed in a small plastic or glass container together with some oatcakes. Pack it together with my Asparagus and Parma Ham Twists with Pesto or Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Turkey Rolls for perfect picnic experience. 🙂
