If you are still taking allopurinol, that should allow you to induldge a bit.
But since you are taking a small dose, you should be careful. The amounts you are talking about aren’t excessive so that ought to be fine.
If you are worried, get a blood test a few weeks after changing your habits. I doubt you would see a statistically significant difference.

That said, there are other concerns than uric acid. I wouldn’t recommend the smoked salmon one finds in most shops and I don’t know how you handle alcohol. There are many reasons to avoid alcohol such as having liver problems.

Generally, I think most people who have a serious gout problem would do well to avoid alcohol until they stop having attacks.
But you never had really serious attacks or high uric acid, right? So the risk is minimal in your case.
