Nothing 'festive' this time, sorry guys ;) This is something which constantly reminds me my childhood. Generally in my family fish is widely eaten and there are many thing in which it's used. Smoked mackerel paste is one of them. I remember when I was very young I really didn't like it a lot... But growing older means (sometimes anyway ;) ) that you're getting wiser at the same time. It's dead simple and very nice on a piece of toast :) It will be great on a small toasts/blinis as a starter or finger food during a party. Of course I didn't have to convince anyone about advantages of eating fish (good fats Omega 3 etc.... ).
How to make it...
- 3 or 4 smoked mackerel fillets
- 2 hard boiled eggs, diced
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1 tablespoon plain yogurt/cream
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- salt and pepper
- diced radish (although I didn't have it this time...)
Take the mackerel, remove the skin and with your fingers rip the fish apart into small pieces (be careful to remove all the fish bones, I know it's a fillet but still...). When your fish is done add diced eggs, chopped green onions, diced radish, mustard and yogurt/cream. Mix everything with a fork and season to taste. Basically - it's ready! Although I prefer to put it into the fridge for some time so the flavours can mix together well.
