Low fat mackerel pate

So, this has possibly got to be the only tasty recipe involving cottage cheese that I have ever tried. Seriously, you won’t regret it. And this is coming from someone who resolutely loathes anything with cottage cheese in it. 😛

The mackerel is great for Omega 3- fatty acids that your body needs for immunity for things like cancer. 🙂 This recipe makes a LOT, but don’t worry, it keeps well in the fridge for several days and tastes so good you’ll be scoffing it down. It’s a health food, honest guvnor!

Mackerel Pate- serves 4-6

2-3 medium smoked mackerel, bones and skin removed ( I used 280g from Sainsbury’s!)

1 lemon, skin and pips removed

1 small carton cottage cheese with chives (or whatever you fancy)

few squirts lime juice or half a fresh lime

black pepper

1. Put everything into a blender and blend for around a minute, until well combined and of desired consistency.

2. Serve with oat cakes or crackers (ryvita would work well), or in the hull of an avocado for luxury! 🙂

Total calories per person- 200 assuming you get 4 portions from the above! Enjoy!

    I’m one of the few who LOVE cottage cheese – this looks right up my alley!
    And I could use all the brain food I can get.

    When we go to the family holiday house in the summer, the neighbours bring us freshly caught mackerel and we cook it for breakfast- it really doesn’t get any better than that! Brain food it is!

    I like cottage cheese, but I don’t like fish. LoL 😉

    I’m the other way around! I love fish!
