Roasted Sardines and Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes

Roasted Sardines with Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes


Many of my friends and myself simply don’t care for sardines because of the strong, oily taste. I never ate sardine and did not use them in my kitchen. However, my husband really likes them if prepared correctly. I took up the challenge in my culinary atelier to devise a way to elimanate or at least reduce strong fishy taste. The delicious combination of my savory, smoky, sour, salty and spicy Blend No.70, roasted onions and roasted heirloom cherry tomatoes does the trick. You have to try this!
