Smoked Fish Sliders:

  • 1 can kippers (~3oz) King Oscar kipper snacks recommended
  • 4 slider buns
  • To Serve: microgreens or green leafy lettuce

Yogurt Sauce:

  • ½ cup plain yogurt (whole milk preferred)
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha Or use your favorite hot sauce


  • Drain kippers, and flake apart fish.
  • Mix together the yogurt and sriracha.  (Add sriracha to taste-- use more or less as preferred.)
    Note: You will have extra yogurt sauce.  Use it for more sliders, or store it in the fridge and add it to eggs, tacos, or sandwiches.
  • Assemble the sliders by dividing the fish between the buns, and topping with a dollop of yogurt sauce.  Add microgreens or lettuce to the sliders if desired. 
  • Serve immediately, or keep chilled until guests serve themselves.  (See Recipe Notes for serving tips.)


This recipe is easily multiplied.  As written, the recipe uses 1 can of kipper snacks, and makes 3-4 smoked fish sliders OR 2 larger sandwiches.  Simply multiply the recipe for the amount of guests you're serving.
Food Safety / Serving Tip: Avoid leaving these sandwiches out for long periods of time in the hot summer heat.  If the sandwiches will be sitting out in the heat, try setting them on a serving tray, and then place that tray on top of a tray of ice.
Nutrition information will vary depending on the amount of sauce used.  These calculations assume that 2 tsp of sauce are used per slider bun.
