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.
