  • 3 small smoked mackerel fillets
  • 100g lighter plain soft cheese
  • 2 tbsp low-fat natural yogurt
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 celery stalks
  • Crusty bread, to serve
  • Put the mackerel on the chopping board, skin-side up. Starting at the tail end, peel away the skin – it should come off in one piece. Throw away the skin.

  • Next, break up the mackerel into small pieces. Put them into the bowl. Wash your hands.

  • Add the soft cheese and yogurt and mash everything together with the fork.

  • Using the smallest holes on the box grater, finely grate half of the lemon rind. Add it to the mackerel.

  • Cut the lemon in half. Squeeze out the lemon juice, add it to the bowl and mix well.

  • Cut off the top and bottom of the carrots and peel them. Now, cut the top and bottom off the celery stalks.

  • Slice the carrots and celery into sticks for dipping. Put the bowl of mackerel Pâté on a plate with the dippers and serve.
