Smoked Snoek Paté

One of my Facebook friends, Dawn Henderson-Stewart, asked for an authentic South African recipe and I can think of nothing more authentic than snoek paté.  If you don't have snoek you can use any smoked fish - mackerel or angel fish make good substitutes.


300g smoked snoek deboned and flaked
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp dill, chopped
1 Tbsp chopped green onion (scallion)
1 tub cream cheese
1/2 tsp tomato sauce (ketchup)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
A dash of hot sauce (Tabasco)
salt and pepper to taste.


Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz for about 2 minutes until all the ingredients are combined and have formed a smooth paste.

Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Serve with melba toast or whole wheat bread.
