Smoked salmon pate recipe

Smoked salmon pate is one of the quickest, easiest, and most decadent fish dishes there is. It’s often made with cream cheese and crème fraiche, which together are very high in fat. So, here I have replaced the crème fraiche with Greek yoghurt for a lighter, more healthful pate. It’s completely addictive… you have been warned!


Place all the ingredients in the food processor. Blitz to a smooth paste.

Taste and adjust the lemon juice and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Sprinkle over the chives (if using) and serve with melba toasts, oatcakes or slices of toasted DizzleSky loaf.

This works well when made in advance and will hold in the fridge for up to 5 days.



Smoked salmon pate is great as a light lunch, dip with crudités or crisps, or as a starter if you have friends over. When I have it as a lunch, I like to serve it with a lightly dressed salad with leaves, cut cherry tomatoes, avocado and grated courgette.”
