Continuing with our obsession with canned sardines, this recipe is another super easy and quick way to eat sardines! Treat it as an alternative to a tuna salad – you can pack these for lunch or spread them on top of some 5-minute Paleo bread for a quick sandwich or on top of some cucumber slices for a party snack.
If you’re unfamiliar with canned sardines, they’re cheap, easy to eat, and highly nutritious. Just remember to use sardines that are packed in olive oil (and not vegetable or seed oils), like these Wild Planet sardines.
This recipe takes under 5 minutes to make. It’s really the mustard and fresh lemon juice that makes this recipe so good. Plus, if you’re on a ketogenic diet, then this recipe also works for you – sardines are high in fat, super nutritious, tasty, and cheap. So, pretty good on all fronts. And if you’re not a fan of the fishy taste, then the mustard and lemon juice takes most of that out in this recipe.
I hope you give it a try.
I know it doesn’t look all that pretty at this point, but it will taste good!
