Egg and Sardine Empanada Filling

The Egg and sardine Empanada filling is almost a non-cook, easy to make the filling, almost because you will need to boil the egg. It uses ingredients that will normally be in your kitchen already. If you have empanada dough in your freezer that needs to be used up but you don’t want to put in the effort of making more complicated dough filling, this is the filling for you. It is simply delicious and effortless.

You can substitute canned sardines with any canned fish or meat you already have, tuna, mackerel (Geisha) or any fish of your choice. You can also use corned beef, baked beans, luncheon meat etc., in which case, omit the lemon juice.

Use it to fill my Empanada dough.
