Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

Light Mackerel Pâté

Whizz one part smoked mackerel (I like the peppered kind) and one part cottage cheese in a food processor for a few seconds until combined.  Add a squeeze of lemon juice and some chopped parsley.  Done.

  1. How do you not melt when you look into those big brown eyes – I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from feeding Marco the whole works! Just love that dog!

  2. A Lo-Fat treat . Just what I’m looking for .
    In fact Lidl do a virtually no-fat cottage cheese which would make this superbly Lo-Fat AND tasty .
    Bread looks delicious too . Did you make this yourself or are you lucky enough to be able to buy this locally ?

  3. Laura – I’m fairly sure a fork and a strong wrist would suffice… )

    Melody – It takes strength, will power and… well, I don’t know. He wins me over every time!

    Geraldine – Hello! It’s my own bread. Make it (or something similar) at the weekends. It’s good fresh for a couple of days and toasted for a few more after that. Recipe here: http://aweebitofcooking.co.uk/2011/02/12/olive-bread/

  4. Hi Wendy,

    Just had this for supper, It was delicious.

    I spread the pâté generously on little shop bought Melba toasts and crunched my way through eight of the little blighters before I remembered that I’m supposed to be watching my waistline!

    I’ve included a link to your blog on my blogroll and look forward to reading your upcoming posts and also to seeing more of your great photographic skills on display.

    Keep up the good work!

  5. P.S. I’ve just made it , and it’s delicious .
    Even using low fat cottage cheese …. though , in retrospect , my decision to use the stick blender wasn’t sensible !

  6. Made it last night and didn’t whiz it at all as hubby likes “chuncky” pate. Just mixed it together until well combined. Then ended up at neighbours house so took it along and was a huge hit! So glad I tried it.

    @ Geraldine – I used fat free cottage cheese and it was wonderful!
