A fuss-free delicious mackerel pate recipe, perfect if you are looking for a healthy quick meal.


Units Scale
  • 4 mackerel fillets
  • 15g parsley, finely cut
  • 15g coriander, finely cut
  • Half brown onion, finely diced
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp mayonnaise (I like Hunter and Gather brand)
  • 1/2 lemon, juice only
  • 2 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

To serve

  • Bread (I like Seedful brand)
  • Salad
  • Fermented cabbage or pickles


  1. Bake the fish in the over at 180 C for 20 minutes. Remove it from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes. 
  2. Remove the skin from the fish and bones – the odd bone is fine as the mixture will be blended. Add the fish to the blender.
  3. Add the mustard, black pepper, salt, turmeric, mayonnaise, lemon juice, vinegar, blend to a paste and remove. Incorporate the herbs, diced onion and season to taste. Mix well to incorporate all ingredients.
  4. Serve on a slice of bread accompanied with a salad and sprinkled with some fermented cabbage.
