The secret is in the sauce. Piri-piri pepper makes a splash in this smoothly blended gem. Slightly spicy, ultra satisfying, and ready for fiesta.
Delicate notes of red pepper add verve to this passionate pâté. The feel is a lustrous kiss, soft and lingering. And the suave flavor has just the right amount of heat. Like it cooler? Add a dash of lemon to calm the kick.
Fun fact: Mackerels skillfully swim together in schools that can span 20 feet.
Impressive, delicious, and nutritious…this swift-moving fish is full of vitamins and minerals. Dive in!
Pairing: white wines, e.g. vinho verde, wheat beers, champagne cocktails, e.g. French 75, mezcal neat, white port
Serving: enjoy with semi-hard cheeses (manchego, Rabaçal); add a side of patatas bravas; spread on artichoke bruschetta
Ingredients: mackerel, olive oil, tomato, spices (vinegar, red peppers, piri-piri), salt
A mackerel pâté at a picnic under the blue sky could certainly make for a nice way to welcome back spring. The creamy texture and the softly spicy aroma are appealing, as are its freshness and exquisite flavor.
