Spiced Mackerel Pâté

Spiced Mackerel Pâté

A blue fish (mackerel) pâté at a picnic under the blue sky could certainly make for a nice way to welcome back Spring. The creamy texture and the softly spicy aroma are appealing, as are its freshness and exquisite flavor. You will no doubt have plenty of ideas as to the company, the moment and the location.

Some days nothing can step in the way of an irresistible urge!
