Kipper Pate

Knocking up kipper pate for New Year's Day.  Sadly our overnight guests had to cancel first thing this morning as their young son is ill, so I'm making one portion for our family lunch tomorrow and one for the freezer.

1 pack boil in the bag kippers
125g soft cheese
1 medium garlic clove
Lemon zest (optional)

Boil the kippers according to the instructions on the packet.  The pack I bought did say microwave but this tends to dry them out too much in my opinion so I prefer to boil them.

When cooked/heated through (about 15 minutes) cut open the bag and tip into a food processor along with the soft cheese, garlic and lemon zest if using.  Puree, spoon into a pot, pop on a lid and place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to chill.

Serve on toast or as a pasta sauce.  Beware that there are little flexible bones in kippers.  These are fine to be eaten but may put off fussy eaters.
