This recipe will be a change from Christmas fare with the added advantage of being quick and easy. It is perfect for a light lunch with hot toast and a salad, spread on small crackers and garnished with little chopped cucumber or tomato as canapés or as a starter. I buy peppered smoked mackerel for extra flavour. It can be made the day before needed.
225 g smoked mackerel fillet, carefully skinned and boned
200 g reduced fat soft cheese
Dash of Tabasco sauce
1 – 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper
- Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
- Season to taste.
- Garnish with any of these: lemon slices, tomato, cucumber or parsley
- Chill until required.
