Smoked Mackerel Pate

Another of my basics for a red day.

Tastes good with salad or if you increase the cheese to make it milder you can roll smoked salmon round it. If you use fromage frais instead of Quark it makes more of a dip consistency and you can serve it with carrot and courgette sticks.

Equal quantities of Smoked Mackerel and Quark (or V. low fat cottage cheese blended until smooth)
Whole grain or french mustard
Tabasco sauce (optional)
Squeeze of lemon

Remove skin and any bones from the mackerel and break into pieces.
Put into food processor with other ingredients and blend until smooth.
Taste and adjust seasoning
Chill for an hour or so to firm up.
