sardine cappucino with chilli and mashed potatoes
  • 40 mn
  • 4 people
  • Medium


  • 1 can of Connétable Sardines Généreuses in chilli
  • 400g Vitelotte potatoes
  • 1dl semi-skimmed milk
  • 1/4 litre single cream
  • Fine salt, ground pepper


  1. Prepare your mashed potatoes: add the potatoes to a large pan of boiling water and leave to cook until you can easily pierce them with the tip of a knife. Let them cool slightly then peel. Mash with a ricer then add boiling milk and whisk energetically. Season with fine salt and ground pepper. Keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, put the sardines in a mixer and chop until you obtain a very smooth purée. Tip into a bowl and mix in the single cream. Mix and season to taste with fine salt and ground pepper.
  3. Pass the mixture through a sieve then pour into a cream whipper. Load with two gas cartridges and shake vigourously.
  4. When it's time to serve, add a small portion of mashed potato to a serving glass, then top generously with your whipped sardine cream.
