FYI, this recipe will taste great without the sun-dried tomatoes and capers. And you can omit or decrease the amount of cayenne pepper. The key is seasoning with the herbs, garlic and lemon. Hope you enjoy!

Yummy yummy! As iloveolilveoil advises this recipe is super good even without the capers and sun dried tomatoes if you don't have them on hand. I'm easily turned off by the fishy flavour of plain sardines from a can but I've really been trying to find a way to make myself like them. The lemon, garlic and spices balance the strong flavour out very well... it's hard to believe I'm eating sardines! I used canned sardines with jalapeno peppers so to compensate for the spiciness I omitted the red pepper flakes. I think I could eat this everyday its just so easy, healthy and refreshing!

Great taste and an easy recipe. I would serve this at a party and bet people wouldn't know they were eating sardines. I just added all ingredients together and ate the paste on wasa flat bread
