But anyway, none of my business I am just here to tell you that I didn’t even follow what was given online. First of all, my ingredients wasn’t complete like pickle relish and carrot, instead what I just included on my homemade recipe for Spanish sardine was tomato, whole black peppercorns, bay leaves, green chili, olive oil,cinnamon stick, salt to taste, water and fresh sardines.
It was so simple to do and prepare. Just gather the ingredients first like what I have mentioned above and put it in a pressure cooker. Now this one is the trick, I don’t know what type of pressure cooker you have, but in India, they have the best pressure cooker and what when it whistles, that’s the right counting you need to remember, unlike other pressure cookers that keeps on whistling like a train and you need to set a timer on it.
Anyway, I just prepared the sardines and cook it in 15-18 minutes and it was all done and the bones were soft. After we cool down the sardines, we placed it in a bottle where we can store. The taste was just superb and you can obviously smell what was cooking in the kitchen when the pressure cooker started to whistle and call your attention.
Take note, I did not say put the sardines in the bottle and place it inside the pressure cooker that is INCREDIBLY INSANE because that glass bottle will definitely explode. Just what I have read on someone else’s article, duhh! Never ever do that death defying stunt in your kitchen and in your very own home.
By the way, if you ask me how much fresh sardines are needed, well what I just prepared was ½ kilo and this was enough to fill our long slim glass bottle. Again, if we talk about sardines, you need to exclude the tail and heads so clean it properly before putting the other ingredients in.
