  • Author: Irena Macri
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 1 1x


  • 100 g canned sardines (look for a brand with extra virgin olive oil)
  • 56 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped finely
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise (look for olive oil based or make your own of macadamia oil)
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • Squeeze of lemon juice

For the salad

  • 1/4 red pepper/capsicum, diced
  • 1/2 celery stick, sliced
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 avocado
  • Pinch of sea salt, chili flakes
  • Drizzle of lemon juice and olive oil
  • Fresh parsley or other herbs


  1. Drain the sardines and mash with a fork, leaving the bones in. The bones contain most of the calcium and are small enough to eat.
  2. Mix the mashed sardines with the onions, sun-dried tomatoes, mayonnaise, some lemon juice and black pepper. You can arrange everything around the sardines mixture on a plate or mix the salad in a bowl and serve the sardine forshmak mixture on top.
