Use an equal amount of cream cheese - so for 200g of smoked mackerel, use 200g of cream cheese.

If you use this ratio, you can make any quantity of pate you like.

You can buy budget, store's own brand for this as you are adding your own flavor.

Black pepper, horseradish sauce and lemon.

You will adjust the seasoning at the end when you taste the pate.

The horseradish cuts through the oiliness of the mackerel.

Remove the skin from the smoked mackerel - it comes off very easily.

Break it into large flakes and make sure you have removed all the bones.

There's little worse than finding bones in your pate.
