One of many dishes i loved growing up were canned sardines in tomato sauce. not fancy pants by any means, but my grandma taught me how to make it a little more “gourmet” by adding freshly sliced onions, thai bird chilies and some sprinkles of cilantro. incorporate a little rice and instant foodie nostalgia! what were some food staples in your household?
I know this doesn't look like much, but it's the result of hunger and creativity in a house with an empty fridge! haha
i never mind cooking the day before grocery day because it means i have to get creative. this veggie and sardine stir fry, cooked in coconut oil and ghee, on a bed of raw greens seasoned and spiced for flavor and to mask the sardines and it came out way better than i thought it would! .
sardines are a small oily fish that are packed with omega-3's and actually really good for you but i'm not so fond of the taste so i seasoned it up and i've masked the taste pretty well. .
this plate has bell peppers (red,orange and yellow) carrots, cucumber, broccoli, tomato and tomato sauce, 2 free range eggs, kale, spinach and a little swiss cheese. seasoned to taste with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, southwest chipotle seasoning and a couple splashes of hot sauce made from habanero peppers. .
i may never be able to replicate this exactly as it is today so i'm going to enjoy every last bite. don't be afraid to experiment with whatever you have left in the pantry/fridge.. you may come up with something epic!!
Another wine pairing 😉❓what to drink with this delicious dish of marinated raw sardines❓the fresh sardines 🐟🐟🐟 are marinated with 🍊 juice and olive oil. sardine is a very tasty and rich fish. my first choices would be high-acid white wines like an albariño from rías baixas, a muscadet or sauvignon blanc from loire, a portugal vinho verde or a vermentino from corsica or sardegna. but some champagne rosé would be a great pairing too! 🥂🥂🥂 so, who's hungry? 🤤
