During Popular Saints season in Portugal, Ana Paula reunites all her family at home for a big dinner. Member of Aveleda's wine tourism team, she looks after every detail from the decoration to the menu. Last year she decided she wanted to surprise all the guests with an original appetizer. In collaboration with Clavel's Kitchen, we created this delicious Sardine pâté recipe with red pepper chutney spread in dark rye bread. Give a special touch to tradition and toast with Aveleda Vinho Verde. The perfect way to welcome summer.

INGREDIENTS
FOR THE CHUTNEY
  • 1 red pepper 
  • ½ small onion 
  • 1 garlic clove 
  • 1 teaspoon of minced ginger 
  • 60 g of sugar 
  • 60 ml white wine vinegar 

FOR THE PÂTÉ
  • 2 cans of sardines in olive oil 
  • 1 tablespoon of butter 
  • 80 g of cream cheese 
  • 1 tablespoon of pickles 
  • 2 tablespoons of vinegar 
  • 5 parsley branches 
  • Black pepper 

FOR THE SOUR DOUGH BREAD TOASTS
  • Slices of Sour Dough Bread 
  • 2 garlic cloves 
  • Olive Oil 

PREPARATION
For the chutney, thinly dice the peppers and thinly chop the onion and the garlic. Place all the ingredients on a pot and cook it until it starts boiling. Lower the heat to a medium (always boiling) for an hour. Remove the cover and let it cook at a high temperature to reduce the sauce and add the consistency of a chutney. Let it cool. For the pâté, place all the ingredients on a blender and blend them thinly. For the sour dough bread toasts, cut the bread in thin slices. Crush the garlic and spread it on the slices. Heat the olive oil on a pan and let them fry until toasted on both sides. Serve the toasts with the pâté and the chutney on top.
