Many Slavic people have memories of sprats sandwich from early childhood, after all its one of the most popular snacks on any holiday table. Today I will be sharing this recipe with those who have never tried these before. Or maybe you have had sprats before, but in a different recipe.

Growing up my mother made smoked sprats sandwiches with fresh cucumber for big occasions, like Christmas or New year’s. These sandwiches are a delicacy for us. They are an acquired taste, but if you love fish then you will appreciate this recipe.

History of sprats

In the 18th century merchant’s came up with an idea of how to preserve the fish by putting it in barrels and filing it with oil to increase shelf life. Later, in 1890 sprats began to be preserved in jars. Each jar was soldered by hand, which made the production expensive. And the product became a delicacy. Today you can find sprats in any European market.

Every time I make smoked sprats sandwich with fresh cucumber for a party, everyone loves them. The bread is perfectly crispy, while the garlic mayonnaise is creamy, and the cucumber and tomato add the perfect amount of freshness to the sandwich. These ingredients combined make the perfect appetizer.

Каждый раз, когда я делаю бутербоды с шпротами на вечеринку, они всем нравятся! Хлеб идеально хрустящий, майонез с чесноком сливочный, а огурец и помидор придают бутерброду идеальную свежесть. Сочетание этих ингредиентов дает самую лучшую закуску.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 can smoked sprats in oil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 baguette
  • 2 mini cucumbers (half of an English cucumber)
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 table spoon fresh dill (garnish)

How to make sprats sandwich with fresh cucumber

Using a serrated knife cut the baguette at a slight angle. ( cut the slices to 2 quarter on an inch)

Preheat a cast iron skillet on medium heat, then spray the pan with a little bit of cooking spray ( you can use olive oil, but because the fish is oily I prefer cooking spray)

Place the slices onto the cast iron skillet and let each slice fry on each side for a few minutes till it is golden. You can also place them on a baking sheet and into the oven at 400F for 5 minutes. Watch them closely so they don’t burn. ( you can also use a regular non stick pan as well )

While the toasted baguette is cooling of, to a small bowl add the mayonnaise. Put garlic through the garlic press, then add it to the mayonnaise, mix to combine.

Coat every slice of baguette with the garlic mayonnaise.

Next, cut a cucumber at an angle and put it on each slice. Cut a tomato in half then slice it into thin slices and place it either next to the cucumber, or over it.

Lastly, put one sprat on every sandwich and top it off with fresh dill.

Keep covered in the fridge until its ready to serve, best served right away.

Ингредиенты

  • 1/2 стакана майонеза
  • 1 банка шпрот в масле
  • 3 зубчика чеснока
  • 1 багет
  • свежий огурец
  • 1 помидор
  • 1 столовая ложка свежего укропа

ИНСТРУКЦИИ

  • С помощью зубчатого ножа надрежьте багет под небольшим углом. (нарезать ломтиками до 2 четверти на дюйм)
  • Разогрейте чугунную сковороду на среднем огне, затем сбрызните сковороду небольшим количеством кулинарного спрея (можно использовать оливковое масло, но поскольку рыба жирная, я предпочитаю кулинарный спрей).
  • Положите хлеб на чугунную сковороду и дайте каждому кусочку обжариться с каждой стороны в течение нескольких минут, пока он не станет золотистым. Вы также можете поместить их на противень и в духовку при 400F на 5 минут. Внимательно следите за ними, чтобы они не сгорели. (можно также использовать обычную сковороду с антипригарным покрытием)
  • Пока поджаренный багет остывает, в небольшую миску добавьте майонез. Чеснок пропустить через чеснокодавилку, затем добавить к майонезу, перемешать.
  • Смажьте каждый ломтик багета чесночным майонезом.
  • Далее разрезаем огурец под углом и кладем на каждый ломтик. Разрежьте помидор пополам, затем нарежьте его тонкими ломтиками и положите либо рядом с огурцом, либо поверх него.
  • Наконец, положите по одной кильке на каждый бутерброд и посыпьте сверху свежим укропом.
  • Держите накрытым в холодильнике, пока он не будет готов к подаче, лучше всего подавать сразу.
