Life has been a little crazy lately.As I posted on my Facebook page I had my semester one exam yesterday (I am studying Naturopathic Nutrition) and have been busy preparing for that. I was in need of a little R and R!
Yesterday was a long day with a 6am start and by the evening I wasn't in the mood for cooking too much so I decided to use up a smoked mackerel I had in the fridge and make a pate. I fancied something tasty to dip other than veggies so I decided upon trying some crackers.
Here is the result!
1/4 cup of coconut flour
1/8 cup of flaxseed (ground)
1/8 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup hot water
Pinch of pepper
1/4 tsp mixed italian herbs
Smoked Mackerel Pate:
1 x smoked mackerel, filleted.
Tbsp homemade mayonnaise
Lemon juice to taste
Salt/pepper to taste
2 tsp dried dill
smoked paprika to garnish
Mix dry and coconut oil ingredients in a bowl.
Add water a little at a time allowing oil to melt into mixture. Use a fork to mix and break up any lumps.
Continue to add water until dough comes together.
Place on a baking sheet and flatten with your hand until as thin as possible. Cut into desired shapes.
Place in oven for approx 20 minutes or until light brown and crisp.
Makes about 20 crackers.
To make mackerel pate:
Flake fish into a bowl removing bones as you do so.
Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Garnish with the smoked paprika.
Serve with crackers for a light lunch or snack.
