Sardine sandwich - a popular sandwich in Malaysia. Hmm... but I have no idea whether it is still popular now as I have been living here for so long. This is a flavor I remembered when I was in secondary school when my friends came over to my house to teach me how to make it for a school event. These days, I made it as an appetizer for guest or tea time snack. Not only this is easy to make but very nutritious as well, as we know sardine is a good source of calcium, protein, iron and rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
Showing here my own recipe. But you can certainly add chopped onion or lime juice if you like.
1 small canned of tomato based sardines, drained
8 pieces of 100% whole wheat bread
Lingham chili sauce
Tomato sauce/ ketchup
1. In a bowl, pour in drained sardines. Add ketchup and chili sauce to taste and mash all with a fork.
2. In a cutting board, spread two pieces of bread with butter. Spread one side with mashed sardine and cover with another piece. You can cut the edges off or keep it, whatever you fancy. Then, cut into four little triangle sandwiches. Serve at room-temperature or cold. You can cover the leftover with cling wrap and store in refrigerator.
I am also submitting my recipe to the Original Recipe event hosted by Lore at Culinarty. Check out others' recipes around the week of Jan. 16th.
