Smoked Salmon Pate

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by PetsRus

This is an excellent pate, the recipe is easy to double or halve and is very quick to make! It is rich but over the years that I have made this, I already cut back on the amount of butter from the original recipe!

This is good! One word of advice (something I learned after making this twice): If your salmon tastes too salty for your taste, it will still taste too salty even after adding the rest of these ingredients! Use a smoked salmon you really like!
