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.

This pate combines the health benefits of oily fish and nuts, a combination which goes surprisingly well together. It can be eaten as a lunch or snack on bread or toast and takes minutes to prepare from canned fish. Sardines or any other oily fish could be substituted for mackerel.

This is a great dish to serve smoked mackerel in a different way with warm toast and butter with a side salad. This dish reminds me of winter Sunday afternoons sat in front of the fire. The amount of pate this recipe makes is sufficient to serve 4 to 6.

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.

Whether you are planning a simple family meal or an elegant dinner party, this fresh-tasting smoked fish pâté makes the perfect light starter, served with slices of Granary toast. For an extra special presentation, spoon it into scooped-out lemon shells, which will also enhance the tangy lemon flavour.

A fantastically easy fish pâté that's also really cheap. Makes a great appetiser for parties. Serve with oatcakes. Serves 4 to 6 as a starter.

For this beautiful pâté, smoked mackerel is blended with luscious cream cheese, butter and tart lemon to balance and brighten the creamy, rich flavours. Spread this delicious mixture on toast as a lovely starter for either a small family meal or dinner party, or enjoy as a snack any time.
