Easy, quick, surprising, delicious, should I say more?!
250G PEPPERED SMOKED MACKEREL FILETS
30ML OF SINGLE CREAM
A PINCH OF FLAKED CHILLIES
THE ZEST OF 1/2 LEMON
Melt the butter slowly in a saucepan with the chilli flakes to infuse in the butter for a couple of minutes. In the meantime, discard the skin of the filets.
In a food processor, put the pieces of fish, the butter and the cream. Add the zest of 1/2 lemon. Blend until smooth.
With the help of 2 tablespoons,scoop the mousse from the blender and form a little "quenelle" between the spoons. Put the quenelles on a plate, cover gently with a cling film, without squeezing down and store in the fridge for few hours.
Serve with a thin slice of lemon and crackers or toasts.
Instead of quenelles, you can also separate the mousse into 4 small ramekins.
