You will need
1 punnet watercress or rocket leaves
1 x 240 g Ina Paarman’s Sun-dried Tomato Quarters in Vinaigrette, drained
Carefully remove skin and all the bones from the snoek and then flake. Blend all ingredients, except cream in a food processor. Whip cream and fold into mixture. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve with melba toast. Paté has a fridge life of 1 week. It should not be frozen. If you prefer a pinker colour, increase Tomato Pesto to 2½ t (12,5 ml). Cover with cling film and refrigerate until serving time.
Dish the paté into individual paté pots and sprinkle with a dash of Chilli & Garlic Seasoning. Serve melba toast, watercress or rocket and tomato quarters with the paté.
Substitute 1 x 200 g tin of pink salmon for snoek. No need to remove the small bones, but peel away dark skin.
Melba toast keeps well in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
½ white sandwich loaf (one day old is easier to slice)
Cut all the crusts off the bread with an electric or sharp serrated knife. Cut this block of bread diagonally across into 2 large triangles.
Slice these triangles into paper-thin slices, place them on a cooling rack on a baking tray and dry out in a warm oven (150°C) for about 20 minutes. Keep in an airtight container for up to a week, or longer if frozen.
