Sardine Rillettes

Introduction

This was posted by Elise on her blog SimplyRecipes (http://simplyrecipes.com). The only thing I did was switch full-fat cream cheese to 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I estimated serving size and don't forget to add whatever you put the spread on when you ate it! This was posted by Elise on her blog SimplyRecipes (http://simplyrecipes.com).

Ingredients

    Two 3 3/4 ounce cans of sardines, packed in olive oil, drained
    2 1/2 ounces of Neufchâtel cheese or cream cheese
    1/4 cup minced shallots (or minced red onions that have soaked in lemon juice for a few minutes)
    1/4 cup lime juice or lemon juice, or to taste
    2-3 Tbsp minced fresh herbs such as chives, parsley, or dill
    Pinch of cayenne
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

** 1 ** Remove the sardines from the cans. Using a small, sharp knife, carefully open each one down the belly and back, folding them open to expose the backbone. Remove and discard the bones. Cut away and discard any tails. Set aside.

** 2 ** Place the cream cheese in a medium bowl. Fold and stir with a rubber spatula until smooth. Add the shallots, scallions, fresh herbs, and most of the lime or lemon juice, mixing into the cheese with the spatula.

** 3 ** Add the now boneless sardines to the cheese mixture. Use a fork to smash the sardines and stir into the cheese. Add cayenne, salt, and pepper to taste. Add more lime or lemon juice to taste.

Either serve immediately or chill. Can make up to two days ahead if you carefully cover with plastic wrap so there is no exposure to air, and chill.

Serve on crackers, bread, celery sticks, or as a stuffing for cherry tomatoes.

Serving Size: Makes about 1 cup. Serves 6 to 8 as an appetizer.

Number of Servings: 4
