Hello my dear friends!
In Alsace, potatoes are a sacred ingredient!! 😉 and obviously we have the best potato salad in the world! (I’m not exagerating…)
And yet, here I am proposing another recipe: the potato and sardine salad.
And I must say that it’s not bad at all…
This recipe is really simple, quick to make and will be a complete meal. You can also serve my potato and sardine salad as a starter.
This dish is based on 3 main ingredients:
– the potato obviously… I suggest to take a variety that is adequate for steam cooking like the Amandine. You can also have the Roseval (with red skin).
– the sardine with oil: I bought sardines from Conserverie Parmentier, they were delicious. You can also take tuna with oil, anchovies or even mackerel.
– the egg: it’s poached in a vinegar boiling water. Once the water and vinegar starts boiling, make a swirl in the center with a fork for instance, then pour the egg at once (without the shell). The swirl mouvement will help get a rather round shape and a smooth surface to your poached egg.
The result is a winner: kids and grown ups love it ! And you can cook this potato and sardine salad all year long. Perfect or what?
A steam cooker,
A small sauce pan,
A cutting board
And a sharp knife.
Let’s do this!!
