About this recipe: This fancy mackerel pate is ideal for a dinner party and I particularity love it because it can be made in advance, allowing me to focus on the main course. Serve with melba toast or crackers.


Serves: 4 

  • 200g cooked smoked mackerel
  • 60ml double cream
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon creamed horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • a few handfuls fresh watercress

Prep:15min  ›  Extra time:30min chilling  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Drain any excess liquid from the mackerel then flake with a fork, taking care to remove any bones. Add the cream, mayonnaise, horseradish, lemon juice and seasoning and stir vigorously to make a light and airy pate. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Arrange the watercress in a bed on a serving plate then spoon the pate on top. Serve.
