Calories 290kcal


  • 1 can sardines preferably oil-packed
  • ¼ cup parsley loosely packed
  • ¼ cup cilantro loosely packed
  • juice from ½ lemon

  • 1-2 tablespoons capers for serving (optional, but they add an excellent hit of brine and salt)
  • Baby kale or some other baby greens for serving
  • Life-changing bread serves as excellent toast for serving


  • Add drained sardines to food processor, reserving leftover oil in the tin. Add parsley and cilantro and process for 5-10 seconds or until mixture is uniformly combined. Add lemon juice and drizzle in a bit of reserved oil to loosen the mixture. Process until combined.
  • Meanwhile, you can use brush some of the reserved sardine oil on slices of bread and grill over medium heat. Spread sardine mixture on bread, top with baby greens and capers and eat!
