Lemony smoked salmon risotto with herby broth

Recipe by Spencre Linnea AKA Gingertooth

1 ½ cups arborio rice
1 3.5-ounce can smoked salmon by Fishwife
5 cups herby broth, or chicken broth
1 small yellow onion, chopped small
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
6 tablespoons butter

½ cup dry white wine
1 cup freshly grated parmesan, plus more for serving
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 fresh thyme sprigs
1-2 teaspoons lemon zest for serving
Fresh dill for serving

1: In a medium pot, bring broth to a light simmer over low heat.

2: In a large skillet, heat 4 tablespoons of the butter over medium high heat. Add onions and cook for 5-7 minutes, until soft and translucent. Add the garlic and thyme sprigs and cook for 1 minute.

3: Add the rice to the onions and garlic, stirring continuously for 4-5 minutes, until the rice is lightly toasted.

4: Add the wine to rice and onions. Cook until evaporated, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

5: Reduce the heat to medium and slowly add broth to the rice, about 1 cup at a time. Stir continuously until the broth has been absorbed. Repeat with remaining broth, adding 1 cup at a time until broth has absorbed and rice is al dente, 20-25 minutes.

6: Add the remaining butter, lemon juice and parmesan to the rice, stirring to combine. Reduce heat to low and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes, until the risotto is creamy, but still firm. Taste as you go, seasoning with salt as desired.

7: Add Fishwife’s smoked salmon to the pan and mix it into the risotto. Remove from heat and serve warm. Garnish with lemon zest, parmesan and fresh dill.

Drink this broth in your favorite cup throughout the day, as a base for your favorite soup or to make rice

pizza puttanesca

Recipe by Kourtney Paranteau aka Cute Meat


Makes two ten-inch pan pizzas

For dough:

● 400g bread flour, plus more for dusting
● 15g kosher salt
● 4g dry active yeast
● 50g white sugar
● 275g luke warm water
● Plenty of good olive oil for several moments in the recipe (about 1⁄4 cup)

For the pizza:
● 2 cups tomato puree
● 10 whole garlic cloves, roasted
● 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
● 1⁄4 cup sliced black and Castelvetrano olives
● 1 tablespoon capers
● 1⁄4 cup loosely packed fresh parsley, finely chopped
● 1 tin Fishwife Sardines
● 1⁄4 cup loosely packed fresh basil, stemmed and tossed in olive oil
● 3 squash blossoms, torn and tossed in olive oil
● 2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
● Zest from 1 lemon

In a large bowl, sift flour with other dry ingredients before pouring water over the mixture and working with your hands until a sticky dough forms. Drizzle about two tablespoons of olive oil alongside the walls of the bowl and move your dough around until the ball of dough is coated in oil. Seal the bowl with plastic wrap as well as place a clean, dry towel over the bowl and allow your dough to rise overnight (or a minimum of six hours).
After this time preheat your oven to 550° and dust a work surface with remaining flour and knead gently for about three minutes before splitting the dough in two. Coat the bottom of a cast iron skillet with olive oil and let one half of your dough rise once more, covered, for about an hour before pressing the dough with your fingers so it evenly covers the skillet’s surface.
Over the sauce, evenly distribute half of the tomato sauce, garlic cloves, cherry
tomatoes, olives, capers and parsley. Bake in the oven for ten minutes before removing and scattering the remaining toppings over the pizza before baking for a final five minutes. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for five minutes before serving. Repeat to make a second pizza.

sardine pasta with lemon zest and pine nuts

Recipe by Little Fish

Serves 4-5


1 can of fishwife sardines

1 box linguini, 1 lb  

3 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced

1/2 cup white wine

1/3 cup toasted pine nuts

1 small yellow onion, finely diced

1 tbl L'Amante hot pepper paste 

2 tsp colatura or fish sauce

2 lemons

1 cup parsley, chopped

Olive oil



Cook pasta to al dente in a tall pot with salted water. Before straining the pasta, reserve 1 cup of pasta water.


While pasta cooks, cut sardines into bite size pieces and reserve the oil they come in.


In a large sauté pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sweat diced onion and garlic until translucent. Once translucent, add pepper paste and stir. Add white wine to deglaze and bring to a boil. Add half the pine nuts and sardines to the sauce. Break the sardines up and into the sauce as it cooks.


Add the cooked pasta and pasta water to the sauté pan and cook on high heat to create an emulsified sauce. Once the sauce has reduced and coats the pasta, add half of the chopped parsley, colatura and juice of one lemon. Salt to taste.


To plate, evenly distribute pasta across 4 or 5 plates, top the pasta with some of the sauce that is left in the pan. Garnish with the remaining pine nuts, parsley, lemon zest and a spoonful of reserved oil from the can of sardines.


summertime salad with panko-fried sardines

Recipe by Zoe Komarin aka ZoeFoodParty

Serves 2-people



1 heaping teaspoon of mustard

½ lemon juiced

1 clove of garlic finely minced

1 can of “liquid gold” (the oil from the sardine can)

Salt and Pepper


Whisk all of these ingredients together until creamy and emulsified. Set aside while you make the salad. If you want it less “fishy” substitute olive oil for the oil from the can - but really you should just get down with the fishy vibes of this salad


Summertime Salad:

1 head of Romaine lettuce roughly chopped

1 ear of fresh corn removed from cob

1 stone fruit of your choice sliced thin

1 tomato sliced

A couple other fun vegetables chopped to their desired size (think: snap peas, cucumber, radish, green onion, carrot, etc etc etc)


Get your Summertime Salad ready and set it to the side while you fry your sardines. I recommend using a large shallow bowl or plate so that you can spread the ingredients out - it will look lovely and be a perfect landing pad for the stars of the our little fried fishy friends.


Panko Fried Sardines:

1 can FISHWIVES Sardines

⅓ cup panko (or any bread crumb will do)

⅓ cup flour

1 egg

1 tablespoon of finely chopped parsley

Salt and Pepper

¼ cup grapeseed oil


Panko Fried Sardines:

Do not Panic! You are about to fry. For some reason this puts the fear into many. I am here to tell you it will be fine. You will do great!


Start with 3 shallow small bowls or plates.

Bowl 1 - Add flour and season with a little salt and pepper.

Bowl 2 - Crack your egg and whisk until completely combined.

Bowl 3 - Is for your panko and chopped parsley.


GENTLY coerce the sardines from the can - trying to keep them whole (if they break, it’s fine, they will get breaded and fried up either way!)


In the order written above, drop your sardines into Bowl 1 for a light flour dusting, then into Bowl 2 to get goopy with egg, and finally into Bowl 3 so the panko can form a crispy crunchy crust.


Heat your oil in a pan to medium heat. When it starts to shimmer, drop the heat to medium low and carefully place your sardines into the hot oil.


Allow them to get nicely browned (1-2 minutes) on one side, then flip to finish browning on the other side (another 1-2 minutes).


Remove to a paper towel lined plate and set aside.


The moment of truth! Time to DRESS that salad and scatter your crunchy panko sardine babies abound. Add an extra squeeze of lemon over the top and dig in for a good time.

To build your toast:

Grab a sufficiently toasted slice of bread & schmear it up.

Place your tomato slices and season them with a little salt and pepper.
Finally, pile your squash ribbon sardine-y salad high on top. Go big here, people!

bibimbap by kourtney paranteau

Serves four



2 cups mung bean sprouts

  • 4 cups fresh spinach, rinses and dried
  • 1 large carrots, peeled and mandolined on a paper thin setting
  • 1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced thinly with their stems kept on
  • ½ cup sesame oil
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • ½ cup Napa kimchi
  • 1 can Fishwife Wild-Caught Albacore Tuna
  • 4 eggs, sunny side up
  • 2 green onions, slices thinly on a bias
  • Red hot sauce of your choice
  • 2 teaspoons Daybreak Seaweed Pure Wakame Flakes


Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat and toss in your bean sprouts. With a wooden spoon, stir the sprouts while cooking to ensure none stick to the bottom of your pot. After three minutes the sprouts should appear slightly wilted but also snap when you test them between your fingers. Remove from heat and staring into a colander and shock with cold water from the tap. Set aside to cool.


In the same pot, bring another pot of water to a boil and this time rain your spinach leaves into the water. Stir again with your wooden spoon but only cook for thirty to forty second before draining into a colander, shocking with cold water and setting aside to cool.  


Now, in a wok or cast iron pan, heat 2 teaspoons of sesame oil over medium heat and stir fry your carrots until they’re soft but still hold their shape. Remove from the pan with a wooden spoon and allow to cool in a small bowl. Repeat the process with mushrooms and return to your spouts and spinach.  


With both boiled produce, squeeze any moisture you can from small portions using your bare hands. You might want to repeat this process a couple times to get any remaining water out.  


Split your toppings into four bowls; sprouts, spinach, carrots and mushroom, pour an equal amount of remaining sesame oil and soy sauce into each bowl. Divide the garlic amongst the spinach and mushroom. Toss each banchan with your bare hands until each piece of vegetable is coated in oil and soy sauce


Build your bibimbap bowl by dividing white rice amongst four bowls and arranging each banchan (including kimchi) in a circle at the center of your own. Gently crown each bowl with an egg and garnish with Daybreak Seaweed Pure Wakame Flakes, scallions and hot sauce before serving.
