SMASH & GRAB : Fastest ever Salmon Pate


You will need:
 120g cooked, peppered salmon
50g Philadelphia extra light
Juice of 1 lemon or lime
Fresh dill
Black pepper

***

This is a great little stand-by recipe, if you need to rustle something up quickly, or you just fancy a wonderful snack. This amount of peppered salmon works out to 6 propoints (approx 250 kcal). You can use any cooked fish; smoked trout fillets are delicious, even tinned tuna. Propoints and calories will vary so please recalculate if you adapt the recipe. All versions are equally delicious- so it's really about preference or availability!
Try using a lime occasionally instead of lemon to ring the changes.

***

50g of Extra light Philadelphia is 1 propoint.(approx 50 kcal) So....this recipe makes a large bowl of pate-easily enough for 2-4 portions depending on how hungry you are. The finished dish is propoints (approx 300 kcal) for the WHOLE bowl.
This works out to;
2 portions= 4pp (150 kcal) each
3 portions=2pp (100 kcal) each
4 portions=2pp (75 kcal)each

***

Literally flake the fish with a fork and combine with the other ingredients. It's as simple as that! It takes 30 seconds to a minute to make and is more delicious than any ready-made pate I've ever tasted!
Serve with crispbread or toast.(Remember to add the propoints or calories for this).
Great for a nutritious, light lunch or starter-or a snack any time of day!

***

HANDY TIP: Weigh the whole amount then calculate and apportion servings into little ramekin pots and keep in the fridge for those 'Smash & Grab' moments.

Yum! Have you ever used Quark as a substitute for cream cheese? On the Slimming World plan cream cheese carries points or syns as we call them but Quark is free, it has no fat and is used in a number of recipes. Would be interesting to know what you think of it. I've used it many times.

I have used it Soo-and love it too! For us on Weightwatchers it carries the same propoints value as the extra light Philly which is less 'sour' so I tend to use that ...however, I'm all for substituting ingredients-especially if it suits your plan better! xx
