In this video I will introduce my new fish paste or fish spread recipe which is both keto friendly and gluten free.
A few years ago I made a video on how to make your own fish paste spread because sadly I could not access my old favorites Peck’s Anchovette and Redro fish spread in our local shops. Since then we have gone onto a keto diet and a family member has been diagnosed gluten intolerant so I decided to modify and simplify that original recipe.
( https://youtu.be/7i3J7Bnx5iI ) to make it keto friendly and gluten free.
This keto diet fish spread is wonderful on buttered low carb bread as a quick, nutritious breakfast. The beauty of this recipe is its simplicity, just 3 main ingredients and a prep time of 3 to 4 minutes and I believe I have improved the taste as well.
Let’s get going and I’ll time preparation.
Add the following to a small blender (check labels if you are preparing gluten free)
1 tin (110 grams) sardines in oil
5 or 6 (about 20-30 grams) anchovy fillets in olive oil
3 heaped teaspoons (about 45g) sundried tomato pesto
Apart from these main ingredients one could jazz it up a bit according to your taste for instance you could add chilli, black pepper or herbs, I prefer just a teaspoon of lime juice.
Blend all ingredients until they form a creamy paste, about 1-2 minutes.
I prefer the sardines in oil as opposed to those in spring water because they smell less fishy and I believe the oil improves the consistency and shelf-life by cutting out oxygen (along with the lemon or lime juice which lowers the Ph). The fish paste will keep in the fridge for at least 4- 5 days so only make quantities that you will consume in that time. The consistency and flavour improves after a few h ours in the fridge.
The saltiness is determined by the anchovy fillets, so add about 4 or 5 to start with and then add them 1 at a time until the saltiness suites your palate.
