When the day just simply did not permit me to spend too much time at the kitchen, a can of sardines come to a rescue. My sister send me the “Ayam Brand” Sardines from Singapore. You are an Angel sis! :) Back in college days, I could just open up a can of sardines and happily I was eating it with a bowl of rice. I could probably also just serve the sardines out from the can just like that, however, I somehow feel that it’s a bit “too simple”. I opened up the fridge and I saw some tomatoes, spring onions and onions, so I thought, well, adding those to the sardines will make it more like a “proper” dish. ha! Well, it worked and I’ve always love sardines and I haven’t had it for the longest time.

What you will need:
  • 2 cans of sardines (about 7 oz) in tomato sauce (you can use whatever brands you like)
  • 1 onions (thinly sliced)
  • 2 roma tomatoes (diced)
  • 1 stalk spring onions (finely chopped)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp of canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp of chili powder (optional)
  1. Preheat a skillet/wok with canola oil. Saute the onions until they are soft. Add in the tomatoes and continue to cook until the tomatoes are soft
  2. Add in the sardines, be careful not to stir too much and break the fish into pieces. Season with salt, pepper and chili powder. Bring to a boil and then turn off the heat
  3. Sprinkle with spring onion and voila…dinner is ready
