Sardines On Rosti


Sensational Sardine Starters…

Prep time:15 mins

Cook time:25 mins

Serves: 20


  • 2 potatoes, coarsely grated
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 110g can John West Scottish Sardines in Tomato Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons roasted pine nuts
  • Baby basil leaves for garnish


Step 1

Place grated potatoes in a large bowl, season with salt and stand for 2-3 minutes. Place mixture into a sieve and squeeze out any excess moisture.

Step 2

Heat a frying pan on medium high heat, add 2 teaspoons oil and 1 teaspoon butter. Place a teaspoonful of the potato mixture into a hot pan; flatten with a spatula to form a small disc. Cook 6 rosti at a time until golden brown: turn and cook the other side.

Step 3

Drain on paper towel and cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining potato mixture, wiping the pan clean with paper towel between each batch.

Step 4

Mash John West Scottish Sardines using a little of the tomato sauce to make a soft consistency. Add chopped pine nuts and combine. Place spoonfuls of sardine mix on top of cooled rosti and serve garnished with a baby spinach leaf.

Tasty Tip!

Starchy potatoes are best when making rosti.
