Mackerel pâté on toasted bagels
Why not introduce this classic back into lunchtime? Super quick to put together, it’ll soon become a firm favourite. Serve with two portions of vegetables on the side.
1. For the pickle, mix 1 tbsp sugar, 5 tbsp vinegar and 5 tbsp warm water until dissolved. Add ½ thinly sliced red onion and set aside.
2. Blitz 4 mackerel fillets, 3 tbsp soured cream, juice of ½ lemon, 30g melted butter, 40g chopped gherkins and black pepper in a food processor to form a smooth pâté.
3. Spread across 4 toasted bagels, topping with the pickled onion and salad leaves.
