Smoked Mackerel Spread with Cream Cheese and Chives

Smoked Mackerel Spread
So I sent my husband to the supermarket to buy me some smoked salmon. He came back with a pack of smoked mackerel and said to me, “I remember you really liked the trout last time” ?!?!?!

Oh well… We should be grateful because otherwise I would not have rediscovered my love for smoked mackerel spread.

We always like experimenting with new bread spread, open sandwiches ideas. We often have some rye bread along side some salad as a light dinner or a quick lunch.

This smoked mackerel spread recipe is great because it subtly tones down the strong flavour of the mackerel and the lemon juice adds a fresh taste.
