  • 2 tins of sardines (ca. 125 g tin)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 handful of parsley
  • 150 g. breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbsp Sriracha sauce (or other spicy sauce for e.g. sambal oelek or piri piri)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 15 g Vegetable oil
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • Lettuce leaves



In a large bowl, combine the sardines, eggs, garlic, parsley, breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.

Pat the mixture into small balls (ca. 1 inch in diameter) and set aside.


In a small bowl blend together the Sriracha sauce, soy sauce, and fresh lime juice.

Heat about an inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet - until sizzling hot.  Fry the sardine balls in the oil for 3-4 minutes until golden brown, turning occasionally with tongs. Place the fritters on a platter with a paper towel underneath to absorb the excess oil.

Wash and dry the lettuce leaves and place on a serving dish. Place the fritters on top, drizzling with the Sriracha-soy sauce and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
