Here’s a recipe that’s well worth dipping into. Although the key ingredient in a tapenade savoury paste is traditionally anchovies, John West Sardines make a great, full of flavour alternative. Our tasty little fish, combined with capers and garlic make for a delicious sardine tapenade dip that’s sure to be a dinner party hit.


  • 2 cans of John West Boneless Sardines in Olive Oil
  • 1tbsp capers
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 1tsp vinegar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 grinds freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 sticks celery
  • 2 carrots
  • ½ cauliflower
  • ½ cucumber, peeled

Step 1

Our simple tapenade recipe is nice and easy to prepare. Thoroughly mash the sardines and capers together in a bow with a fork and add the garlic, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mix well so you can absorb all the different flavours.

Step 2

Wash and peel the vegetables and slice into sticks for dipping.

Serve your tapenade in small dipping bowls with the crudités on the side.
