Ingredients

  • 7 oz canned mackerel fillets (200 g), drained weight
  • 5,5 oz cream cheese (155 g)
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds
  • ½ tsp dried herbs
  • pepper
  • salt

Instructions

  1. If you don’t have a stand mixer, then I recommend to mash up the mackerel and the rest of the ingredients with a fork because that will make this delicious dip chunkier. If you are looking for a more creamier version however, then you better prepare the mackerel rillettes in a blender.
  2. Add all the ingredients to the bowl of the KitchenAid Stand Mixer Mini and season with a pinch of pepper and salt to taste.
  3. Attach the flat beater and lower the mixer head.
  4. Set speed 3 and mix the ingredients for 2 minutes.
  5. Scrape down the sides of the mixer bowl.
  6. Set speed 4 and mix the ingredients for 3 minutes.
  7. Scrape down the sides of the mixer bowl.
  8. Let the rillettes cool in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  9. Serve as a sandwich spread or and an appetizer.
