Mom's Sardines

You know sardines are good for you don't you? Well, they are! Mom made this every time we had people over. You serve it with crackers, or baquette bread.

Ingredients1 Can of Sardines in Water (Bumble Bee, or some name brand. It's safer to use fish in a can from a name brand)
1 lemon cut into halves
1 handful of parsley leaves chopped
1 small onion chopped
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Chop up the onion finely, place in a strainer, rinse with cold water. Place in a bowl. Sprinkle the onion with salt and pepper (use your judgment, start with 1/2 teaspoon each). open the sardines and strain the water from them. Place sardines on top of onions. Add Parsley. String the EVOO over the ingredients. Squeeze 1/2 of the lemon over and combine all the ingredients. Break up the the sardines while combining. I usually add the entire lemon. Taste it first. Add more if you like. Adjust the salt and pepper too if you like.
Enjoy on crackers, or toasted bread.
