Sardine pâté with lemon, gherkins & smoked paprika

sardine pate with lemon, gherkins & smoked paprika

Sardine pate with lemon, gherkins and smoked paprika. One of my favourite things on toast - crunchy, spicy, zesty and a twist on the classic sardines on toast. 

Cream cheese, oily fish and gherkins are a great combination. The sweet and sour gherkins add a lovely contrast to the fish. The smoked paprika, mustard and chilli add a little spicy heat too. 

Serve on toast, crisp breads or as a dip with crunchy vegetables.

preparation time: 10-15 minutes

180g tinned sardines (2 tins) 
150g cream cheese 
zest & juice of 1 lemon
3-4 gherkins - finely chopped  
1 heaped tsp smoked paprika
1 heaped tsp mustard (I used American style) 
dash of Worcestershire sauce 
ground black pepper to taste 
1 chopped chilli (optional) 

to garnish: 
a few more chopped gherkins & smoked paprika

drain the sardines and add to a bowl and mash with a fork before adding in all the other ingredients. Mix well. Garnish with a few more chopped gherkins and a sprinkling of smoked paprika if liked.
