Fish pate


Fish and fish liver complement each other in terms of the nutrient profile. Protein from the flesh requires vitamin A for a proper utilisation of amino-acids, and liver is the richest source of vitamin A.

Perfect for breakfast, lunch or as a filling snack. In case of sensitive digestion, omit the capers and chilli. Add a bit of salt to taste instead.


  • 2 tins of sardines in olive oil

  • 2 tins of cod livers

  • 1 tea spoon of lemon zest

  • 2 tea spoons of lemon juice

  • Small handful of chopped chives (you can also use dill, parsley or 1/4 finely chopped red onion or a mix of all)

  • 1 table spoon of capers (they are salty so no extra salt needed)

  • 1-2 table spoons of olive oil

  • Chilli flakes


  1. Mash up all ingredients with a fork, except for capers

  2. When the pate is ready, stir in the capers
