CAROL’S HOMEMADE FISH PASTE (UK)
For those who love fish paste and can’t buy it outside SA.
I make my own fish paste – just as nice as Pecks.
- 2 tins of sardines in oil or water
- 1 tin anchovies in oil
- 1 – 2 tablespoons tomato paste
Drain sardines and remove any tiny bones.
Place in blender and blend till smooth, add anchovies including half of the oil – add tomato paste (I add a bit at a time) and blend till smooth. (Check and adjust with more tomato paste if necessary) – keep in fridge.
Make some toast and spread your fish paste – grab a cup of coffee and sit back and enjoy the flavour of home. Hope this helps those of you who love Pecks.
