Sardine Pate or Sandwich Spread

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Manami

This Scandinavian-inspired spread is wonderful on dense, thin-sliced pumpernickel bread or whole grain crackers. Sardines are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids, known to help reduce risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and cancer.

This was delicious!! I added a lot more olive oil than was called for because I really love lemon juice. This contributed to my pate/spread being a bit less firm than it should have been, but I knew that would happen. Excellent recipe. Ate with crackers and wine.
