We love making this simple mackerel pate that's delicious on bagels, toast, baguette or pita bread.
Hot smoke a couple of mackerel so that the meat easily comes away from the bones. Discard skin and all bones
Place the meat in a mixing bowl with a large dollop of cream cheese and an equally large dollop of butter. Blend it all together to make a rough paste. Add lemon juice and pepper to taste.
Consume on hot bread or toast accompanied by your favourite fragrant white wine
