Dairy Free Mackerel Pate

 Mackerel Pate

mackerel pateThis easy to make Mackerel pate is great as a snack on rice cakes, eaten with crudites, or as a filler for lunch time wraps. Mackerel is rich in the healthful polyunsaturated fats known as long-chain omega-3s, which may help boost heart health.

It is also an important source of protein and B vitamins, particularly vitamin B12. An 85g serving provides nearly 700 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin B12. It also offers tremendous amounts of selenium, a mineral that helps to protect our cells against damaging free radicals.
