Poor Man's Pâtѐ
Mr TH loves peppered mackerel.
Mackerel is good flaked on salads...
...but even better as Poor Man's Pâtѐ. (Why do I call it that? I've no idea...)
Mix soft butter or cream cheese with flaked mackerel. I normally add a third to a half pack of butter to a whole packet of fish. If you want a really smooth texture, use a blender/food processor.
Add lemon juice (and grated lemon rind if you want).
I never season Poor Man's Pâtѐ because the fish is peppered & the butter is salted.
One pack of fish makes 2 good sized pots of pâtѐ; one for the fridge & one for the freezer!
