Sardine Kefta Sandwiches

 The first time my husband showed me these sandwiches I wanted to turn tail and run. However he was convinced  I would enjoy them and wanted to share this part of his childhood with me. I’ll admit it was better than expected. We have shared these sandwiches with hundreds of visitors to Marrakech now and 9 out of 10 rave about them.

         1/2 lb fresh sardine flesh cleaned and

removed from bones

         1/2 teaspoon ras al hanout (add more or less to your liking)

         1/2 teaspoon grams smen (Moroccan butter) can use Indian ghee or salted butter at room temperature – just enough to hold together

         Small handful chopped cilantro

         Combine everything and blend by pulsing in a food processor until the mixture is similar to a thick paste.

Shape into balls and put into a grill press. Grill 5 minutes on each side or until fish is cooked through. You can also cook in a grill pan or simply fry in a pan.

         Chopped raw onions

         Raw tomato sauce (flesh of a tomato grated with some cilantro, salt and pepper blitzed in)


         Sliced green olives



Assemble your sandwich by adding the toppings you like. Some may seem odd but they all work together really well, try them all first then adjust based on your tastes.
