Sardine Recipe




    For the sardine balls:

  • 2 (4.4oz) cans of Wild Planet Wild Sardines In Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1/2 tsp Garlic chili paste

  • 1 tsp Coconut aminos

  • 1 inch of Ginger, peeled

  • 2 Garlic cloves, peeled

  • 2 Tbsp Minced onion

  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil

  • For the sautéed zucchini:

  • 2 Zucchinis, spiralized

  • 2 Tbsp Coconut aminos

  • 1/4 tsp Garlic chili paste

  • Chopped green onions for garnish



  1. Place the 2 cans of drained Wild Planet sardines in a food processor, along with the garlic chili paste, coconut aminos, fresh ginger and garlic cloves.  Blend well until fully combined.

  2. Using your hands, roll about 2 tsp worth of sardine mixture into a ball, and place on parchment paper.  Continue until there is no more sardine mixture left.

  3. Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat.  Place the sardine balls into the pan and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes before rolling onto its side.  Continue cooking until brown all around.  Remove from the pan.

  4. Toss the spiralized zucchini into the same heated non-stick pan, and sauté until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes.  Pour in the coconut aminos and garlic chili paste, and stir well.  Continue to cook another 1-2 minutes until desired doneness.

  5. Scoop the zucchini onto a plate and top with the sardine balls.  Sprinkle with chopped green onion and enjoy!
