Avocado pears, tinned Pacific Pilchards (in brine) or tinned herring fillets (in oil) and stuffed olives - in combination, they will provide you with a very healthy, nutritious, and tasty snack. It's highly likely that if you serve this as a dinner starter, you will be asked 'How did you make this?'

I left the gherkins out because I don't care for them and I used herring because I couldn't find pilchards. I don't think I would call this a pâté, it is a bit too loose, but it is really tasty. I have to be honest, I made this on a dare and was happily surprised.
