Delicious smoked salmon pate

Smoked salmon is one of life's luxuries, that is true.  Did you know, however, that you can get packaged "scraps" of smoked salmon for far less than the full sliced kind. It's true!  
Whilst you cannot elegantly lay scraps over pieces of pumpernickel, you can scramble them into eggs or prepare this delicious smoked salmon pate.  It takes seconds, is incredibly versatile - serve it for a simple breakfast or an elegant dinner or a rugged picnic - and totally delicious.
