If you like sandwich spreads, you will like this one. It is based on smoked sprats and tomatoes. It is seasoned with a bit of salt, pepper and herbs de Provence. I serve it on bread, but you can use a baguette, toast, bread, rolls or crackers. As smoked sprats have an intense taste and a characteristic smell of smoked fish, I serve this spread with pickled onion and more sprouts. These two little additions go perfectly with the taste of this paste and make its taste more interesting.
Sandwich spread with smoked sprats is a proposition that works well for breakfast, dinner and as a snack. You can prepare it a day or two before serving and eat it whenever you feel like it. I recommend this recipe for smoked sprat spread and encourage you to try it at home.

Cut the baguette into thin slices, spread each with sprat paste. Arrange the sprouts, pickled onion and smoked sprats on the paste.
Good to know when making smoked sprats sandwich spread.
The weight of sprats in the list of ingredients is their weight after removing the tails and heads. Some people also mix in the tails and heads of these fish, but for me they are a bit hard, so I do not add them to the paste.
Before spreading the spread, the baguette can be lightly baked in the oven or grilled.
Any type of sprouts pairs deliciously with this sandwich spread. You can opt for broccoli, radish, watercress, alfalfa, mung bean or even beetroot sprouts.
