Haven't made this in years and had forgotten my recipe, this one is super easy and very tasty. I didn't have quite enough mackerel but it was still good, and there is no need to bother with a food processor, I made it just as quickly using a fork and and didn't have to wash the food processor - result! - 08 Feb 2011
