Spiced Sprat Sandwich

Serves 1

Look for tinned spiced sprats for this typical Estonian dish. Baltic sprats are normally marinated in a mixture of black pepper, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, coriander seeds, bay leaves, salt and sugar. If they are not available, substitute marinated sardines or herring.


    • Dark Rye Bread 1 slice
    • Butter at room temperature, for spreading
    • Spiced Sprat Fillets 4
    • Red Onion and/or Green Onion Tops 2 Tbs, chopped
    • Hard-Boiled Egg 1, grated
    • Sea Salt Crystals to taste

Cook it

  1. Remove the crusts from the bread and butter the bread slices. Cut into four triangles and top with a cleaned spiced sprat fillet. Top with either sliced or grated hard-boiled egg, then sprinkle with chopped onions and sea salt crystals.
