Asda and the legendary Leiths School of Food and Wine have joined forces in an exclusive partnership which has seen a team of Leiths chefs spend months choosing food and wine from the Asda Extra Special range. This is one of the recipes they created - a delicious smoked mackerel pâté that's perfect for a light spring lunch. You can make this pâté in advance and keep it well covered in the fridge for 2-3 days

Serves 4

Ready in 10 minutes

Ingredients:

200g pack Asda Extra Special Chilli & Garlic Smoked Mackerel Strips

150ml Asda Extra Special French Crème Fraîche d’Isigny

Juice of ½ lemon

25g capers, rinsed, drained and chopped

25g gherkins, rinsed, drained and chopped

Asda Extra Special Artisan Bakery Sesame & Pumpkin Seed and Seeded Flatbreads and green salad, to serve

Method:

1. Remove any bones and the skin from the mackerel. Put the mackerel, crème fraîche and lemon juice into a processor and pulse until combined

2. Turn into a bowl and add the capers and gherkins, and season with salt and pepper. Combine well and turn into 4 ramekins. Keep covered and chilled until ready to serve

3. Serve with the flatbreads and a green salad

Tip: Substitute the gherkins and capers with 1tbsp Asda Extra Special Horseradish Sauce and some chopped fresh parsley

Tip: You could also make this recipe using smoked trout instead of mackerel

The Leiths chefs have also created a collection of delicious recipes and tips which are available at asda.com/extraspecial
