Spicy Sardine Dip

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by MrsKnox2016

A tiny bit of my Portugese heritage all jacked up with American ingredients. When we were kids, my Dad would gather us kids around and we would share a bowl of this nutty goodness, even though it grossed my Mom out. Now I eat this thinking of Dad, all while grossing my DH out!!

quick and easy snack, high in omega 3s. i halved the mayo tho, 4 TBSP seemed way too much, and it was still creamy.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 ounces sardines
  • 2 -4 tablespoons mayonnaise (or miracle whip, start with 2 tbs and test for desired consistency)
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • cracker


  1. Open and drain liquid from sardines. Place in bowl and mash with the back of a fork.
  2. Add mayo, mustard and hot sauce and combine well.
  3. Serve immediately with crackers.
  4. **If your grocery store has them, purchase sardines canned in hot sauce to save yourself a step. Just add the mayo and mustard and serve!
  5. **Per a review, I realized that the mayo/miracle whip may be a bit high for everyone's preferences. I typed it in as a range to better meet so since it's more a matter of your taste in consistency.
