Fresh parsley and mint to taste
Smoked paprika if...

Do you like taramasalata (Greek dip)? I used to like it when I was younger but developed an intolerance of it later. It has the same effect on me as mayonnaise. Its a shame because although I haven't had any for decades I still remember the taste, which I liked. Its often served with pita bead...
Except for the process of smoking the fish, this is a very easy recipe. I've seen some that overpower the beauty of the mackerel by adding horseradish, but this simple mix lets the smoke and the fish itself stand out.
4 ounces smoked mackerel
3 tablespoons light cream cheese

We get through a lot of hummus in this household. If it is not hummus, it is often mashed chickpeas with a touch of oil and tahini added, not enough to class as hummus and not mashed enough to even be classed as chunky but just enough to hold the mixture together. So given we always purchase...
