Smoked Fish/Salmon Pate

I became addicted to smoked fish pate  as a child and the addiction hasn’t stopped, I use smoked Trout, or Kahawai, but any smoked fish works well and it freezes beautifully . Recipe by Melanie Eady


  • 200g smoked fish
  • 250g cream cheese (softened)
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 3 lemons
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped chives
  • 1 tsp salt
  • black pepper
  • Optional : wasabi paste, sweet chilli sauce or basil pesto


  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl and blend until a spreadable consistency (using a hand held mixer or food processor). The fish can be slightly chunky if you wish.
  2. Serve mixture into ramekins. Makes 2..
