Yam and fish


    I worked the weekend so I had yesterday off but I’m back.
    On the menu today is something I used to turn my nose up at. Canned Sardine specifically Titus. I didn’t like the fish smell. I’m over that and now I know that Titus is very versatile. Straight from the can you can put it in a sandwich or into moi moi batter; you can also put it in a salad or into a stew.
    Today I’m having it in a stew over boiled yam, but you can substitute yam with rice, beans, bread, plantain or potatoes.
    Ingredients: Sardine in vegetable oil, small onion, clove of garlic, two small peppers, four tomatoes, salt, black pepper, curry powder, thyme.

    You may also add: Big peppers, green peppers, dried pepper powder, large egg and boiled beans.

    • Chop onions, garlic, tomatoes and small peppers (If you want to add big peppers or green peppers chop as well.
    • Open can of titus and drain oil into small bowl.
    • Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. (If you like the sardine smell, use sardine oil)
    • Add onions and garlic to medium heat with a little salt and black pepper and fry till slightly soft.
    • Add remaining vegetables and flavor with curry powder and thyme. (dried pepper if you want it hot)
    • If you want, you may add eggs, boiled beans or corn beef. (make sure to boil beans before hand)
    • Fry until most of the water from tomatoes has evaporated.
    • Fold in sardines gently if you don’t want them to completely break into the stew.
    • Taste and add salt if needed.
    • Cover for few minutes and then turn off heat.
