Pop's Tomato-Braised Sardines
My husband spent 2 years in the Philippines as a missionary. Along with his life-changing experience, he brought home a rich culinary repertoire that he incorporated into our family recipes. He passed away in 2016, and these recipes have become things our children treasure. They are part of the memories and fabric that keep his memory bright and alive. Here is "ginisang sardinas" which is a wonderful way to use canned sardines. This is usually eaten spooned over rice per each individual's desire/taste.
Skinless and boneless canned sardines are best, but bone-in is okay, too. In Asian stores, you can sometimes find Filipino canned sardines in tomato sauce. But, when you can't find them, this recipe is a very easy way to make that delicious sauce.
