    I have made this for several years. The only difference is that I add 1/2 tsp. or so of liquid smoke. I prepare 2 or 3 batches and put into a plastic wrap lined fish mold. Refrigerate for several hours then turn out onto a platter and decorate with sliced almonds for the fins and pimentos & olives for face features. you can get real creative and make a beautiful display for an appetizer table.

    Very nice spread. I would recommend placing all of the ingredients in a food processor to make the pate as smooth as possible.  -  08 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
