    Mackerel pâté with quick pickled cucumber

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes

    Serves: 6 as a starter

    Ingredients

    1 pack essential Waitrose Peppered Smoked Mackerel Fillets
    180g pack Philadelphia Light cream cheese
    1 tbsp creamed horseradish
    Zest of 1 and juice of ½ lemon
    ½ red onion, finely chopped
    ½ cucumber, seeds removed, finely sliced
    ½ tsp sugar
    2 tsp chopped fresh dill
    12 slices white or brown bread
    Olive oil, to drizzle
     

    Method

    1. Remove the skin from the mackerel fillets, then place the flesh into a food processor with the cream cheese, horseradish and lemon zest. Blitz until smooth. Spoon into a serving dish or large jar, or divide among 6 ramekins.

    2. In a serving bowl, mix together the onion and cucumber with a large pinch of salt, the sugar, dill and lemon juice.

    3. Preheat the grill to high. Halve each slice of bread and arrange on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with a little oil and grill, turning once, until toasted on both sides. Alternatively, use a griddle pan to toast and create grill marks on the bread. Serve alongside the mackerel pâté and pickled cucumber.
