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.

Spiced Sardines, Fried Onions & Mojama



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


Trim the roots off the bottom of the tiny onions.


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


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


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


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


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.


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