Sardines in Tomato Sauce

Humble sardines are about grow in popularity: 1) they taste good-- similar to tuna 2) they're a healthy seafood choice-- rich in omega 3's and calcium, low in contaminants like methylmercury 3) they're eco-friendly-- not overfished 4) they're really affordable. This is a simple dish that goes well with pasta, rice, or polenta. The fennel is subtle and gives it a little elegance.

    I did this with a handful of green beens with the spinach. It doesn't look particularly appetising, so I haven't photographed it. It tastes lovely. My wife and daughter loved it too. It costs pennies to make, it made very little mess, the fennel went lovely but I used double the fennel seed. Considering I am very critical with food and wont eat rubbish and that this dish had fish, spinach and green beans in, none of which I like, it tasted fantastic. I never follow recipes because I always make nicer myself but having never used sardines before, I thought it would be a safer bet. Thank you for a brilliant, simple recipe. Any one reading this just watch towards the end if it starts to stick just add a little splash of water.
