A simple and nutritiously delicious snack or starter. Very easy to make - and even easier to eat! Shony seaweed is a mineral powerhouse which is used to season this dish and compliment the omega 3s, fibre, vitamin D and Cs coming from the mackerel, oatcakes and lemon.
For the pate
3 mackerel fillets (peppered or plain)
1 tbsp of natural yogurt
Juice ½ large lemon, or to taste
For the butter seal
100g of butter
3 tsp of Mara Shony seaweed
Oat cakes or warm, crusty bread
Put all the ingredients for the pâté in a food processor and blitz until it’s of a desired consistency.
Transfer into a dish you want to serve it from. Leave a centimetre or so at the top so you can pour in the butter later.
For the seal, melt the butter in a pan (do not let it boil or burn) and add the shony.
Pour the melted butter and shony over the pâté.
Put in the fridge to cool.
Serve with warm crusty bread or oat cakes, lemon wedges and parsley.
A suggestion, if serving on oat cakes and not warm bread, leave the pâté out until the butter seal has softened.
