  • 2 t capers
  • s & p
  • finely chopped red onion (opt) to taste

  • Mash the avocado in a bowl.
  • Add the sour cream, mayo or creme fraiche and mix to combine well.
  • Add the drained and flaked fish, capers and onions. Mix to combine and taste for seasonings. The pickled avocados and capers are both a little salty so you ½may only need pepper.

Serve as a salad or sandwich or on crackers.
Substitute canned sardines, just drain the oil well and mash. (Sardine oil makes great kibble topper - Your dog will love you!)
