Smoked Snoek Pate

I've had a craving for smoked snoek for quite a while now, smoked snoek pate specifically. It took one lazy Saturday afternoon and 15 minutes to make a fresh, creamy, smokey, lemony pate that is great immediately, and even better once it has had time for the flavours to develop.

I bought myself a new camera a few days ago. I've been having so much fun playing with it, and I really enjoyed taking these photos! <3 dSLR :)

Smoked Snoek Pate
Makes about 1 cup

  • 200g Packet of Smoked Snoek
  • 2 Heaped tablespoons Creamed Cottage Cheese
  • 2 Heaped teaspoons Mayonaise
  • 1 Clove of garlic, cut finely
  • 0.25 Onion, grated or cut finely
  • 0.5 Pickle, grated or cut finely
  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • Juice of 0.5 Lemon
  • 0.25 Cup of Dill (cut into small pieces)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. Flake the fish and carefully remove all the bones.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together. That is all!

Note: These quantities are only a guideline. I devised the recipe by adding ingredients and tasting until I was happy, I highly recommend you do the same!
