Spanish Canned Sardines with Vegetables
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 45 ml
- 1 onion
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 green bell pepper
- 4 tomatoes
- 1 tsp sweet smoked Spanish paprika
- 10 black pitted olives
- 2 cans sardines in olive oil 4.2 oz / 120 grams each
- pinch sea salt
- dash black pepper
- handful fresh parsley
Thinly slice the onion, roughly chop the garlic, thinly slice the bell pepper and finely grate the tomatoes
Heat a large fry pan with a medium heat and add in the olive oil
After a couple of minutes add in the chopped vegetables, except for the grated tomato, mix every 30 seconds so everything evenly sautees, after 6 to 7 minutes and vegetables are lightly sauteed, add in the paprika, quickly mix together, then add in the grated tomatoes, the black olives (thinly sliced) and season with sea salt & black pepper, mix together and then simmer without mixing
Once the grated tomatoes have slightly thickened, about 5 to 6 minutes, remove the pan from the heat, transfer into a large serving dish
Crack open the cans of sardines, gently remove the sardines and add over the vegetables, all in a single layer, give each one a gentle flip so they´re fully coated in the mixture, sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley, enjoy!
