Mackerel Pate

This recipe makes a quick and easy starter that you will find quite easy to consume lots of!! Its quick and easy because you throw everything into a blender, then you serve. Simples! The Tahini gives the pate a creamy texture but also keeps the pate quite solid and spreadable. You can make this with creme fraiche or cottage cheese but the Tahini works well.



The Pate is yummy by itself, but topped with an avocado salsa and it becomes something else. The salsa has sharper taste with hints of chilli, lime and mango (read on) so it goes well with the nutty & creamy flavour of the Pate.
