Simple Smoked Mackerel Pate

I'd forgotten how good this was, it's a while since I've made it. It was delicious at lunch time with some crusty french bread, also goes really well with jacket potatoes. The amount written below was a good portion which will probably last for another couple of lunches. For a smaller amount, serving around 4 people, half the amount shown. 

100g of cheddar cheese
300g boneless smoked mackerel fillets
2 big dollops of natural yoghurt
juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper

The easiest way is to put all the ingredients in to a food processor and blitz until smooth. Alternatively mash and mix by hand for a rougher pate.

For a lower calorie version use low fat cottage cheese instead of the cheese and yoghurt.
