Peel the skin from the mackerel and set aside.

Place the fish, clotted cream and sea greens in a blender or food processor and blitz until smooth.

Transfer the mixture into a ramekin or a lidded jar.

Melt the butter on a low heat, then add the flaked dulse or seaweed salt and stir together. Pour the butter to form a layer over the top of the mackerel pâté and chill to set.

The pâté will keep for up to a week if it is well sealed with butter. Once the seal is broken, eat within two days.
