A friend who had a Thermomix in France gave me this recipe. It was a potluck park and she brought along this most delicious starter. She’d been to a cooking class whilst living in Paris and this was one of the dishes made. I’m not usually one for sardines and in fact, OneGirl hubby immediately pulled a face when I added sardines to the shopping list but I made this last night for a dinner party and it went down very well.
- 1/2 lime
- 60g shallot
- 5g tarragon
- 3 x 84g cans of sardines in oil
- 50g creme fraiche
- salt & pepper to taste
- Peel the lime with a serrated knife to remove as much of the bitter white skin as possible.
- Place 1/2 in the TM bowl and add the tarragon and shallot. Mix 4 sec/speed 5.
- Add the sardines, creme fraiche, salt and pepper and mix 30 sec/speed6/reverse blade.
Hints & Tips:
Place in small pots and refrigerate before serving on toast. If you use sardines in brine, add a tablespoon (tbsp) of olive oil. If you prefer to have a chunky texture, mix at speed 4 in step 2.
