About this recipe: This is an old Italian recipe passed down by many generations of my family. It's mainly used in small servings, and is great as an appetizer spread on bread or as a dip with vegetables.


Serves: 32 

  • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup (90g) minced garlic
  • 4 (60g) cans anchovy fillets packed in olive oil, drained
  • 3 (120g) cans sardines packed in olive oil, drained
  • 1 cup (230g) butter

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Place the canola oil in a skillet and heat over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the butter, anchovies, and sardines. Cook and stir until well blended, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.

The nutritional analysis of this recipe reflects an estimated 10% of the oil for frying as well as the full amount for the anchovies and sardines. Therefore, the values represented may not be accurate.
