“If you wait to do everything until you’re sure it’s right you’ll probably never do much of anything.”  William Borden

I think the above quote is perfect for this quest to find tasty sardine recipes.  Onward!

Here’s another recipe in this quest.  Truthfully, this recipe looks familiar.  I think I once made it with canned salmon.  I think I’m going to add some coconut flour to the ingredients.


1 cup sweet potato or yam, mashed

1 can sardines, drained and mashed

1/2 cup onion, diced

2 eggs

2 T coconut flour


Combine all the ingredients.  A food processor might work well for this unless you have some pent up issues to deal with.  If so, mix it by hand.

Heat some oil in a pan.  About medium heat should do it.  Drop dollops of the batter in the heated pan and cook about three minutes on each side.

Serve with lemon wedges and mayo mixed with something.  I’m voting for hot sauce.


Culinary note – mayo mixed with something is often called aioli.  Generally, the something that’s mixed in is garlic in one form or another.  Some restaurants tend to use fancy words so they can charge more.  Just saying.

Loved the results of this recipe but at this point I need to retire from sardines.  I have a lot of “Seafood Mousse” to eat up from yesterday.  Blessedly, the “Use By” dates on the packages of sardines give me until the end of 2021 to find more amazing recipes.  Or to eat them out of the can.
