Recipe by Manami

The small edible bones of canned sardines, softened and made digestible by the canning process, are a good source of calcium. "As Dr Weil says, they are a good source of calcium and omega-3 fatty acids." The sardines in this dish add a very subtle fish flavor without being overpowering.
