Smoked Mackerel Dip

This is a delicious dip that can be used as a spread, in salads, wraps and sandwiches. If your not  a big fan of mackerel just substitute for poached or smoked salmon, or cooked chicken. Mackerel is bursting full of omega 3 essential fatty acids (EFA's). EFA's can not be  manufactured by the body so its important to try and incorporate them in the diet where possible. They are needed for a whole range of functions in the body including cell repair, and maintaining a healthy reproductive, nervous and cardiovascular system. Thats enough science for now, the main thing is this is tasty, super healthy and so quick to blitz together.

2 Smoked Mackerel Fillets
1 Tbsp of Creme Fraiche
1 Tbsp of Light Philadelphia
Salt & Pepper to season
Juice of half a small Lemon
Few sprigs of fresh parsley or dill

1. Roughly chop up the mackerel and dill.
2. Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Leave chunky if you prefer.
3. Taste and enjoy!
