Sardine Puffs, Sardine Rolls & Sardine Sandwiches


Canned Sardines in Tomato Sauce

Good evening, dear friends 😀

I remember when I was a kid, Sardine Puffs or Sardine Rolls or even Sardine Sandwiches were popular at birthday parties, as a tea-time treat or for our school lunch boxes. A few days back, I made some sardine puffs, using frozen puff pastries but because they turned out not very pretty, I don’t have a picture to show you. 😳

Here is my old, traditional recipe of the versatile sardine filling –

Ingredients –

1 425 gm can of sardines in tomato sauce

1 fresh red chili, deseeded and chopped finely

5 shallots or 1 medium large onions, peeled and chopped

Juice of 2 limes or 1 lemon

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp salt

Method –

1) Separate the sardines from the tomato sauce.

2) Mash the sardine but not too finely as you still want to taste some bits of the sardines.

3) Add in the rest of the ingredients.

4) Put in about 2 tbsp of the canned tomato sauce. Mix thoroughly.

5) Spoon onto pastry or bread.

For making Sardine Puffs or Rolls

– cut the pastry in a rectangular shape, about 3 inches by 4 inches. Put some sardine filling onto the middle. Fold up the edges of the pastry, turn the roll around and place the folded part at the bottom. Brush the top of pastry with beaten egg. Bake until golden brown.

For making Sardine Sandwiches

– cut the skin off 2 slices of bread. Butter them. Spread some sardine filling on 1 slice of bread. Put 4-5 slices of thinly cut cucumber on top, and cover with the other piece of bread. Cut into halves or quarters.

Yummy! 😀

    Hi there and welcome, Kak Frances 😀

    I am not familiar with the stores in New York, perhaps my visitors from the US here would be able to help out here?

    I’m thinking that you would most likely be able to find frozen puff pastry or something similar in the frozen foods section in your local supermarkets?

    Good Luck!

    With peace and harmony from kawan Malaysia,

    choesf 😀
