Nickey's Sardines

Nickey's Sardines created by Engrossed

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 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!

    Cool idea, I really like the ginger in there especially. My sardines fell apart when I was mixing them, so I just mixed them with brown rice rice and made sardine fried rice. It was good!

    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!

    This is a very easy and quick way to enjoy sardines. I usually just heat them with some onion and chili sauce, but his is much tastier and doesn't take much more time at all. I prepared this exactly as written and had it over leftover brown rice I had in the freezer. Very fast and healthy!

    Easy and tasty. I followed the recipe exactly, but added sesame seeds like in the picture. I ate it over rice with pickled onions on the side. Healthy and satisfying.
