"I have been married for over 30 years and only just found out the other day that my husband enjoys sardines. When I saw this recipe in a Woolworths magazine which I got from the supermarket, I bought some sardines and made this for him. I am posing it here for other's to hopefully enjoy. Although, this may have been a more modern way of serving sardines than he was used to as a child, he really did enjoy these sardine's. I did go a little overboard on the salsa, but he didn't mind it at all. I used sardine's in spring water (only because I forgot which kind I had to buy whilst at the supermarket) but sardines did work well in spring water for this recipe."
