Smoked Mackerel Pate

Ok, so I’m not going to tell you my exact age but I will admit that I’m at an age where I have to start thinking about the health of my bones and joints. Yup, the old joints are stiffening up on me 🙁   It is well documented that oily fish helps to reduce swollen joints, pain and stiffness so I try to eat at least two portions a week.  One of my favourite lunch snacks is this smoked mackerel pate.  It takes a few minutes to put together and keeps well in the fridge for a good few days.  Served with toast, crackers or oatcakes it makes a delicious snack packed full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

One problem though – it is hard to stop eating it.  Enjoy!
