Ketogenic and gluten free fish paste recipe
In this post I will introduce my new fish paste recipe which is both keto friendly and gluten free.
A few years ago I made a video on how to make your own fish paste spread. I was motivated to do that because I was unable to find the fish paste I used to love in the local shops. Since then we have gone onto a keto diet and a family member has been diagnosed gluten intolerant so I decided to modify and simplify that original recipe (Link to original fish paste recipe) to make it keto friendly and gluten free.
This keto diet fish paste spread is wonderful on buttered low carb bread as a quick, nutritious breakfast. The beauty of this recipe is its simplicity, just 3 main ingredients and a prep time of 3 to 4 minutes and I believe I have improved the taste as well.
Let’s get going and I’ll time preparation.
Recipe for ketogenic and gluten free fish paste
Add the following to a small blender (check labels if you are preparing gluten free)
1 tin (110 grams) sardines in oil
5 or 6 (about 20-30 grams) anchovy fillets in olive oil
3 heaped teaspoons (about 45g) sundried tomato pesto
Apart from these main ingredients one could jazz it up a bit according to your taste for instance you could add chilli, black pepper or herbs, I prefer just a teaspoon of lime juice.
Blend all ingredients until they form a creamy paste, about 1-2 minutes.
I prefer the sardines in oil as opposed to those in spring water because they smell less fishy and I believe the oil improves the consistency and shelf-life by cutting out oxygen (along with the lemon or lime juice which lowers the Ph). The fish paste will keep in the fridge for at least 4- 5 days so only make quantities that you will consume in that time. The consistency and flavour improves after a few h ours in the fridge.
The saltiness is determined by the anchovy fillets, so add about 4 or 5 to start with and then add them 1 at a time until the saltiness suites your palate.
