Ingredients

  • 2 tins sardines in olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp capers drained and roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp chives finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh dill finely chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp Kosher salt
  • tsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Remove the sardine bones. Use your hands or a small fork to gently open up each sardine (kind of like a book). The bones will be visible on one side of the fillet, and should easily lift away. Discard the bones, then place the fish fillets into a medium bowl.
  • Mash the sardines. Use a fork to gently mash the sardines into a paste-like consistency.
  • Add remaining ingredients. Add 4 Tbsp Greek yogurt, 2 Tbsp room temperature butter, 1 Tbsp capers, 1 Tbsp chives, 1 Tbsp chopped dill, lemon zest, lemon juice, ½ Tbsp Kosher salt, and ¼ tsp black pepper. Stir gently to combine.
  • Refrigerate. Cover tightly, then refrigerate rillettes for 1 hour. Serve. Allow the rillettes to come up slightly to room temperature, then serve with crackers or baguette.

Notes

  • Fresh sardines are great in this recipe if you're able to find them!
  • This recipe will keep for up to 3 days in a refrigerator.
  • Don't have Greek yogurt? Substitute with either sour cream or creme fraiche.
