Smoked Fish Pate

We’re fortunate in New England to know the joys of fresh-from-the-boat seafood; any Bostonian knows there is a difference. We can now experience this joy daily at the newest epicurean hotspot, The Banks Fish House. Frequent collaborators Himmel Hospitality and Chef Robert Sisca (Harvest, Grill 23, Bistro du Midi) are serving local fresh catch with a flair at the new restaurant located in the Back Bay on the corner of Stuart and Clarendon Streets. 

Chef Sisca generously shared one of his favorite recipes, a smoked fish pate recipe, with us. You’ll find this healthy and delicious dish is easy to prepare and perfect for the upcoming holiday season or an elevated football party. Oh, he says to feel free to try it with white fish as well!
