As you can see, one of the most inexpensive ingredients that you can find in your kitchen are canned sardines, so might as well experiment and do something about it rather than eating it directly from the can.

Here's what you need:

1 can sardines
2 potatoes
1 small onion
1 spring onion
2 cloves garlic
bread crumbs (100 grams will do)
2 eggs
2 to 3 tablespoons of flour
a pinch of salt
a pinch of black pepper
a pinch of white pepper
a pinch of chili powder (optional)
a drop of oyster sauce (optional)

  1. Boil the potatoes until they become soft then let them cool down for a few minutes. 
  2. Cut the onion, garlic and spring onion into small pieces
  3. Open the can of sardines and separate the sauce
  4. Go back to the potatoes, they should be cooler by now. Mash them and combine all the ingredients, the mashed potatoes, the cut onions, garlic and the sardines (excluding the sauce)
  5. Add 1 piece of egg and 2 to 3 tablespoons of flour to bind all the ingredients together. 
  6. Add a pinch of salt, a pinch of white pepper, a pinch of black pepper and a pinch of chili powder (optional)
  7. Then mix all the ingredients together, preferably with your hands (so wash your hands thoroughly before mixing the ingredients). Set it aside.
  8. Beat another piece of egg in a bowl
  9. Pour the bread crumbs in a plate
  10. From the already mixed ingredients, form a small ball according to your desired size then roll it over on the beaten egg and afterwards roll it over on the breadcrumbs. (I made 17 pieces of meatballs)
  11. Deep fry the meatballs and that's it, your breaded sardines meatballs are ready to serve!

TIP: If you have not tried cooking, try it, it's fun! You will never know how capable you are until you give it a try. Also, if you miss one or two ingredients, experiment, improvise, do your own thing, substitute the missing ingredient to what is available in your refrigerator. Remember it isn't a crime not to love what you cook (lol) but believe me, you will love it.
