Tasty Sardine Bake

Not much to look at but a divine supper
Fish....not something I'm over familiar with cooking. I've been watching Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage Everyday series on TV and have been finding out all sorts of useful food things. This recipe for fish - a simple tin of sardines - was a revelation. Its tasted so good. What's more my toddler loved it and it was so simple. I actually pre-cooked the potatoes and onions in the microwave and then warmed everything together in a frying pan which made it super quick. I'm a Sardine convert!
Sardine Bake Serves 1 (or 2 with bread)

2-3 medium waxy potatoes, peeled and chopped into matchsticks
1 small onion, or half a medium onion, finely sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tin (about 120g) of sardines in oil, drained
Dash or two of milk

Preheat oven to 180ºC. Then, in a small frying pan melt a little butter and gently fry onions until softened. Add potatoes and fry for a few minutes longer. Add a little salt and pepper to taste. You can use the microwave instead but the flavour is not quite as good.

Grease a small oven-proof dish with a little butter then tip in half of the potato and onion mixture. Top with sardines, then tip over remaining potato mixture. Add a dash or two of milk to the dish, then cover (check if covered with foil) and bake for 20 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Uncover and bake for a further 5 minutes, until golden on top.

Cooked - should have been more golden on top, but, was too impatient to eat it - yum.
