Online recipes can be so much fun! The inspiration for this dish came from a recipe on Serious Eats. I’m sure the recipe as it is presented is delicious, but you know how you get carried away with what you have on-hand and a creative flash as you putter in the kitchen.
Surprisingly, the blending of all these flavors created a whole new flavor. No one taste dominates here. The taste is complex and satisfying. You might even be able to sneak sardines into someone who vows to hate them.
Our preference is sardines packed in oil. Somehow we ended up with this large can packed in tomato sauce. I was mulling over how to use it when I found this recipe. I believe it will be a stunning meal either way: oil or tomato.
We ate our salad over noodles but it would be excellent instead with some crusty sourdough and plenty of butter.
