About this recipe: This smoked mackerel pâté is absolutely divine. We have been working on this recipe for many years to get it right and have achieved a rich consistency and a smooth texture, perfect for those who love fish and shy away from the more traditional liver pâté. Best served on crusty bread at the beach.


Serves: 4 

  • 3 hot-smoked mackerel fillets
  • 55g cream cheese
  • 60ml soured cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • lemon wedges, for garnish
  • chopped watercress, for garnish

Prep:10min  ›  Extra time:1hr chilling  ›  Ready in:1hr10min 

  1. Remove any skin or bones from the mackerel and flake into a food processor. Add the cream cheese, soured cream, lemon juice, fresh herbs and spices and blend until smooth.

I used lime instead of gave it a nice broader flavour - 14 May 2016


I just made this, and it's very tasty! I happened to have all the ingredients in the fridge, and it took all of 10 minutes to make. Perfect! - 01 Sep 2014


Yummy. Very nice dish which is bursting with flavor. I added another fillet of fish which I flaked into the finished pate to add a little texture but apart from that made it as recipe. Really good thanks. - 03 Jun 2014
