A Death Star mackerel pate that's good for your health!

The method

  1. Remove the skin and flake the smoked mackerel flesh into a bowl. Break it down with a fork, the more you mix, the smoother the topping will be. If you prefer a coarser type, go easy with the fork.
  2. Add the crème fraîche and lemon juice and mix it up. If your mackerel wasn’t peppered, you might like to add some but it should be salty enough.
  3. To serve, either dollop onto the plate and shape into a round, or put the pate into a bowl to shape it, then turned it upside down.
  4. Decorate with oatcakes to make your ‘Death Star’ and serve with crunchy vegetables for dipping.
