Smoked Mackerel Pâté with crème fraîche, a delicious starter for every occasion. It's so quick to make, but jam-packed with incredible flavours. No need for expensive ingredients, this is so much better than any ready-made pâté that comes in a tiny jar and costs quite a bit. Best served with a nice slice of bread, toast or bruschetta.  The lemon and creme fraiche gives it a fresh kick, and makes it light and delicious. Best appetizer for Christmas or the New Year.
