This recipe has become a firm favourite in our household, on a night when the fridge seems bare and we haven’t got round to doing the food shopping yet. It only uses cupboard ingredients and is quick to make yet so tasty.
Best of all, sardines are apparently one of the best fish for your baby, they are high in omega-3 essential fats but low in toxins. So they must be good for us too!
