This mackerel pâté will become your go-to recipe when you need a starter or snack in a hurry. Whipped up in minutes in a food processor, its fresh, delicious creaminess can be enjoyed with a selection of crudités. However, we prefer it slathered over slices from a crusty French baguette. Bon appétit!
