Mackerel paste

Delicious sandwich filler – mackerel paste with soft cheese, radish, flat leaf parsley and a tiny bit of mayo.

Without a doubt is one of our favourite sandwich paste. Great on wholemeal toast, roll or cheese crackers. If you prefer not to use any mayo, you can simply replace it with a tablespoon of natural yoghurt. We used sweet cure mackerel strips, but any smoked mackerel will taste great. You can always add 1/2 a teaspoon of honey mustard to get a bit of punch. Use light cheese rather than full fat. Mackerel is an oily fish so it’s rather calorific. Decorate with watercress or rocket. Enjoy!
