Sardine Sandwiches

I love, love, love sardine sandwiches- especially when its cooked with onions and fresh red chilli and drizzled with lime. Serve on toasted white bread.

1-2 can sardines in tomato sauce
1 red onion sliced thinly
1 red chilli chopped finely (I keep the seeds because I like it hot, but you can de-seed the chilli)
1 lime

1. Heat a bit of oil in saucepan and fry onion until softened.
2. Add the chilli.
3. Add the sardines and mix thoroughly. Remove from heat and drizzle with lime juice.
4. Serve on hot toast.

Note: This is also wonderful as a filling in shortcrust pastry. Known in Singapore as Sardine curry puffs. I used to make them in open face pie shells to save on the work of folding them up and making too much pastry, and called them sardine tarts.

Hi there, thanks for the recipe. If I were to make it tonight would it be alright to store in the fridge for next morning?
