Sardine and Sun Dried Tomato Pate

Sardines may not be a fan favorite, but maybe if everyone tried them this way that would change! The acidity of the lemon juice cuts the fishiness a bit, and the bright flavor of the sun-dried tomatoes balances it out perfectly. Even if you’re not a sardine lover, give this one a try, and feel free to substitute any canned fish here!

1 can sardines
3 sun dried tomatoes in oil
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp green onion
Salt & Pepper

Drain the sardines and place into a food processor or small blender. Spoon out 3 sun dried tomatoes from their oil and add to the food processor. Blend for about a minute, until roughly chopped.
Scrap the sides of the processor, then add in the mustard and lemon juice. Blend for another minute. For a smoother texture, scrap down the sides once more and blend one more minute.
Garnish with green onion, and season to taste. Enjoy on rice cakes, crackers, or with veggies!
