Now that I’m not too busy in the mornings, I have the time to cook some hearty breakfast for myself. I bought a can of Portuguese sardines at Landmark. The brand is Porthos. It’s really good. I have to warn you though. It’s bland. The tomato sauce does not have salt in it so you have to season it. I’m sorry but I love sardines from Spain and Portugal more than our local sardines. Don’t hate me for not supporting our local products. It’s just that I get turned off by the local canned sardines. The sardines usually still have their guts in them and that affects the taste of the sauce. It has a taste that I can’t describe but it’s something nasty to me. Imported sardines on the other hand, are clean except for the soft bone in the middle. The flavors are cleaner.

I opened the can on Tuesday morning and ate a few filets with garlic rice. I flavored it with Maggi Savor Calamansi. I had some leftovers and made this for breakfast the next day:

portuguese sardine fried rice, 240baon

This is fried rice that has scrambled eggs and flaked sardines. I used the remaining tomato sauce to coat the rice. Season with salt and pepper or Knorr Seasoning or in my case, Maggi Savor Calamansi. This is a good hearty breakfast to start your day.
