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!
- Ready In:
- 6 sardines (1 can, I usually use Holmes)
- 1⁄4 - 1⁄2 cup green onion, cut in 1 inch pieces
- 1 inch gingerroot, peeled and minced (1 inch may be too much for some)
- soy sauce (to taste)
- chili pepper
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)
- Place add all ingredients in small pan.
- Heat until done.
- Serve over hot rice.

I never would have thought to heat sardines into a meal but it was fabulous. I slightly flavored my rice with chicken broth while it was cooking. I only had mustard sardines and added the entire can into the skillet with fresh ginger, onion, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes. I did leave out the sesame oil but I'll try that next time. It was a very satisfying lunch today. I'll definitely make it again. I even got my husband to take a few bites :) Thank you for posting this!
This was surprisingly good. I've never cooked sardines before but wanted to try it as I've been meaning to get more Omega 3s in my diet. It was uber quick and tasted pretty good. I served it over brown rice and mashed it all up and mixed it up. My sardines came in a flat tin and there were only 4 per tin, so I used two tins for the two of us. It had a familiar taste, though I couldn't quite put my finger on where I've had this before. Good recipe. Thank you!
