Sometimes exotic-sounding names hide the simplest of dishes and such was the case in last month's Russian-themed Kitchen Trotter box. Zakouskis, which remind me of Spanish tapas, are simple appetisers made up of fish, cured meats, caviar, salads ..
In the box was a tin of sprats. I love the authentic Russian packaging.
The recipe in the box was for sprats, tomato and onion on buttered toasted bread. That's it !
It was very simple but very tasty. That said, I would have liked some more complex recipes in this box - the Beetroot & Horseradish Salad was equally simple and barely warranted a recipe.
