I used to make this with Isle of Lewis Cheese Company’s crowdie cheese, but since, sadly, they no longer make it, I use other traditionally made crowdie. Crowdie is good in fish pâtés, with its unique smooth yet firm texture, and with a sharp lemony taste. Otherwise you can use ricotta (although it is not as low-fat as crowdie, which has only 4.5g of fat per 100g) and though the taste is still good the overall texture will be softer.

Any island hot-smoked salmon or trout is suitable
