    Smoked mackerel gives wonderful flavour to this recipe. Serve with crackers, toast or fresh crusty bread. The pâté can be made milder by the addition of more mascarpone or cream cheese.

    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

    I'm not a blue fish fan, so I used smoked trout instead and threw in some capers just for fun. I loved this and so did my guests. Thank you Karen!!  -  16 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
