I don't eat sardines very often but this is the way my DH taught me to make them...I used to just heat them served over rice with a little soy sauce. This is a lot more flavorful!

I just had a wonderful and healthy lunch. This was very good and I will be stocking sardines in my pantry from now on. I only made a few small changes. I put all ingredients in the pan except the fish and chili peppers (which I left out all together) and added a drizzle of honey and boiled until it started to thicken then added the fish and cooked gently while coating with the sauce. I served over Jasmine rice along with a salad with ginger dressing and mandarin oranges for dessert. A lovely and satisfying bento that I will make often. Thank you for posting this. UPDATE: I made this into a sushi roll with cucumber and avocado. I dabbed a bit of the sauce on top of the cut roll like they do for eel. I put it in my Bento box along with just a cucumber roll, some pickled ginger, miso soup and green tea. It was a wonderful lunch.

- chili pepper
