I adore sardines mostly because they have so many health benefits. They fight against mood disorders and depression. They reduce inflammation in the body, and they're packed with calcium and vitamin D. This is one of my favourite ways to prepare them as they have such a beautiful complex flavour. I've demonstrated steps on how to use them with a pressure cooker for optimal taste results, but do read the last step if you'd like to try it without one, using a pan.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes with a pressure cooker, or 1 hour with a pan
You can find the dried kelp (kombu) at most health food stores, Asian markets, or order online from Amazon or Walmart.
I may try this but I'm sure my son will as he loves all kind of healthy unusual foods.
I'd be so excited for you and your son to try this. I can't tell you how many times people have heard "sardine" and ran straight to saying "nope!" They try this and they do a 180. Give it a try with a side of white rice. Lay the fish with its sauce right on it and it will go together amazingly. It's really awesome with a cold, crunchy side; even julienned cabbage with a light drizzle of lemon juice and soy.
Sounds like a good plan. I had to learn at an early age - never discount food because you do not like the color or the "look" or the smell and especially if the taste was different.
