This is a really easy pate to make and tastes so good. It’s a Claire Macdonald recipe from her ‘Fish’ book, enjoy!
450g cream cheese (you can use reduced fat Philadelphia Lite if you like)
1 garlic clove, skinned and finely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
110g fresh prawns, chopped
8 rashers of smoked streaky bacon, grilled until crisp, then broken into bits
A pinch of salt
Black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped parsley (optional)
- Whizz the cream cheese in a food processor with the garlic and lemon juice until smooth.
- Scrape this into a bowl and mix in the chopped prawns, crispy bacon bits, salt, pepper and parsley (if using).
- Serve with granary bread, or crackers.
