Kippered Tomato Cocktail Appetizers

The term kippered acutally refers to a process as well as a fish. Kippering means to split and smoke while a kipper is a larger version of a sardine. Either way, our Kippers are....well, kippered. And that can be discerned the moment you open the can. The aroma of the smokehouse gently wafts by your nose, making it hard not to pick at the kippers when making this gorgeous persentation.

2 (6.7-oz) cans Bar Harbor® All Natural Smoked Wild Kippers, drained

1/2 cup whole kernel corn, drained well

2 tablespoons minced  onion

3 tablespoons pickled or preserved lemon, minced and divided

1/2 cup diced tomatoes

3/4 cup chili garlic sauce, divided

2 tablepoons lime juice

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Iceberg or romaine lettuce

Gently toss sardines, corn, onion, 2 tablespoons minced lemon, tomatoes, 1/2 cup chili sauce, lime juice, and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Place in refrigerator for at least an hour.

When ready to serve, make 6 'cups' of lettuce to form a hand-hold for this spicy appetizer.

Evenly portion mixture into lettuce cups. Top with equal amounts of  remainder chili garlic sauce and minced lemon.  Serve very cold.
