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.

    Fantastic, so true to the original Pecks Anchovy taste! I didn’t use any of the Anchovies oil though, too salty.
