- 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.
