Spiced Sardines with Fried Onions & Mojama

Makes about 7 Servings

Mojama brings briny, umami-packed flavor to this dish in the form of a fluffy pink powder.  The spiced sardines are savory, but not spicy, while the onions are delicately fried to a crispy texture.

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

1

Chill about 2” of the mojama in the freezer for 30 minutes prior to serving the dish.

2

Trim the roots off the bottom of the tiny onions.

3

Stand the onions green-end up in a steamer basket in a deep pot over some water.

4

Bring the water to a boil, cover the pot, and briefly steam the onions for about 20 seconds.

5

Move the onions to a hot oiled skillet and gently fry them until well browned. Remove them to a paper towel to drain.

6

Use a microplane grater to very finely grate the firm mojama to an almost powder-like consistency.

7

Put the bread slices on your serving plate, then sprinkle the plate with the mojama powder. Put a sardine on each bread slice, then two onions.

8

Finish each portion with a light squeeze of lemon juice. Serve.
