Ingredient Notes

  • Let’s talk about the main attraction – the sardine, and for this recipe, one can of sardines is required. Depending on what you want, you can pick from a variety of sardine options but personally, I use sardines in tomato sauce. Try different ones to see which one best suits your palate.
  • Calamansi is Philippine Lime or Lemon in English. You may substitute calamansi with lemon, but use a lesser amount since the latter has a stronger flavor.

Helpful Tips

Make sure to cook the onions over low to medium heat when sautéing them. This cooking method will bring out its natural sweetness and give the dish a wonderful flavor.
Squeeze some calamansi (Philippine lemon) or lemon juice into your Sarciadong Sardinas to give them a bit extra pop. This zesty delight will give your food a light twist and improve the flavor in general.
To give a hint of heat, sprinkle some chili flakes or pepper. This phase, however, is completely optional and can be modified to suit your preferences.

How to Store and Serve

Once you’re done enjoying this delicious dish, simply transfer any leftovers to an airtight container and refrigerate. When stored properly, Sarciadong Sardinas can stay fresh for up to three days, but trust me, there probably won’t be any leftovers! 🙂

  • If using lemon instead of calamansi, lessen the amount to 1/2 to 1 teaspoon as this has a stronger flavor compared to calamansi.
