    • 250g (9oz) smoked mackerel, skinned
    • 2 teaspoons green peppercorns

    1. Flake the mackerel into a blender or food processor, discarding any bones. Grind the peppercorns coarsely with a pestle and mortar or with the end of a rolling pin in a bowl. Add to the mackerel with the lemon zest.
    2. Add the fromage frais and blend or process briefly to a smooth paste. Turn out onto a plate and shape into a ball, then flatten slightly.
    3. Lightly oil the base and sides of a small bowl. Sprinkle the parsley into the bowl to coat evenly. Put the pâté into it and press lightly, then turn it out onto a small plate. Cover loosely with cling film and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Serve with granary toast.
