  1. What a great way to use tinned sardines! I can’t wait to try this because I still have a couple of tins in my cupboard! Thanks for this brilliant idea!

  2. Tried no-cook, oven-style, rice-cooker methods which are all similar to steamed version. Simple and delicious – can’t go wrong with it. Yum yum.
