    1      pound         Smoked tuna or smoked -- mackerel skin remove
    6      ounces        Cream cheese -- softened
    3      tablespoons   To 4 Tb mayonnaise
                         Juice of 1/2 large lemon -- (about 2 Tb)

    2      tablespoons   Very finely diced red onion
 
 Any number of smoked fish can be used in this simple recipe. Instead of a large
serving bowl, you can also chill it in small individual bowls or ramekins for an
elegant first course, with thinly sliced French or black bread.
 Flake the tuna or mackerel and combine it with the cream cheese, mayonnaise and
lemon juice in a food processor. Process until smooth and season to taste with
salt and pepper. Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl and fold in the red
onion. Cover and chill the pate until ready to serve.
