Salmon Pate

Salmon Pate

Pate has always been a favorite of mine to serve at dinner parties. It’s an easy to make, but gourmet-looking-and-tasting treat, that pairs well with dipping vegetables.

Inspired by my Mum’s Tuna Pate recipe, I decided to try a salmon version that incorporates Cucumber Dressing for a fresh and light flavor.


1/2 cup Cucumber Dressing
1/4 cup cooked salmon
Freshly squeezed juice of 1/2 a lime
Salt and Pepper (optional)


Place the Cucumber Dressing, salmon and lime juice in a food processor and pulse until well combined.
Add salt and pepper to taste and then serve chilled.

The recipe makes an individual serving.

Bonus: This pate recipe also makes a great topping for a salad or atop a slice of Paleo Rosemary Bread.

Tantalizing Tuna Paté

Tuna Pate

Tuna Paté has always been a favorite of mine. It was a tradition in our house to serve it at parties and so I grew up loving this South African appetizer. The only problem was, it was made with cottage cheese or sour cream, leaving me feeling the after-effects of lactose and making it anything but Paleo.

This version–although still based on my Mom’s infamous recipe–is dairy-free. The base substitute? White sweet potato and coconut milk! It works like a charm.


1/2 cup white sweet potatoes, cooked, mashed and allowed to cool
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 can tuna (or just a little less than a can if you have a cat that insists on having some, like I do!)
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon dried thyme spice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper (peppercorns or ground pepper)
Dried thyme spice for sprinkling


In a food process, place the sweet potato mash, coconut milk, tuna and onion and pulse until well blended and a smooth paste has formed.
Add the thyme, salt and pepper and pulse for about another 30 seconds.
Taste the paté and add any extra thyme, salt and pepper as desired.
Scoop the final paté mixture onto a plate or into a bowl, sprinkle with thyme for a finishing touch and serve chilled with cucumber, carrots or Jacksons Honest Sweet Potato Chips.

Enjoy a little taste of Africa!
