Quick Simple Snacks
This is the time when a few simple ingredients lurking in the pantry cupboard and fridge can be turned into a satisfying and enticing snack........ but what you ask?
Well...... do you like fish? How about some tinned sardines? Sounds good? No? Trust me it's all good.
2 x 120g tinned sardines
100g soft cream cheese
Fresh or dried dill and/or parsley
1/2 red onion finely chopped
Juice of 1/2 small lemon
1 teaspoon x Horseradish cream (optional)
Sprinkle chillie powder (optional)
Open the tinned sardines and pour off the liquid.
Place into a large bowl, and add all other ingredients.
Using a fork blend by hand all the ingredients together - do not use a blender it will be too runny.
Adjust the seasoning and if you like a bit of heat you can ADD the chillie powder.
Serve with toasted bread, water crackers, rice cakes, pitta bread (can be toasted), and some celery or cucumber sticks.
A very satisfying snack. Enjoy!
Non dairy version - make this without the cream cheese.
Up market version - make this with tinned salmon.
