Sardine Fritters

GF | DF | RSF | NF
Servings 8 Fritters


  • Large mixing bowl
  • Grater
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Frying Pan
  • Spatula or Flipper


  • 1 tin sardines, drained
  • 1 cup grated zucchini (juice squeezed out)
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 tbsp cassava flour spelt would work here too
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley or dill
  • 1 tbsp ghee for frying or olive oil for DF
  • 1/2 lemon to serve


  • Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl and whisk well
  • Grate the zucchini and squeeze out all of the juices into the sink. Add the zucchini to the eggs as well as the fresh herbs.
  • Break up the sardines gently in your fingers, crushing the little soft bones in too, and add to the bowl.
  • Lastly pour in the cassava flour and mix well to form the batter.
  • Preheat a frying pan over a medium to high heat and add in the ghee. Once your pan is hot, spoon the batter into the frying pan - roughly two tablespoons per fritter. Fry on each side until golden.
  • Squeeze over fresh lemon juice to serve, and if enjoyed by the whole family I like to season them with salt too.
