Do you consider making mackerel pate to be time-consuming? Actually most pate recipes are time-consuming so that is not necessarily such a strange thought. This quick mackerel pate recipe differs however. Use smoked mackerel, combining it with green onions, cream cheese and a couple other ingredients and chill the pate until it is needed. I like to chill this overnight because I find the flavors intensify and blend better than way, but a couple of hours should be sufficient. This is nice on crackers or you can serve it on Melba toast with cucumber slices if you want.
