Baby Spinach with Sardines and Blood Orange

Baby Spinach with Sardines and Blood Orange

You might think this is odd but I am a HUGE lover of sardines.

  • they are cheap
  • they are healthy
  • they taste delicious
  • they are versatile and can be used in SO many different dishes

My most favorite brand here in China is Ayam Brand – they sell them in many different oils and sauces : in extra virgin olive oil with chili, in spicy sauce, in teriyaki sauce, in salted black beans and in my favorite, of course, extra virgin olive oil. I eat them weekly in my salads, to make sauces, with my eggs on toasts. They are seriously so convenient and packed with good and healthy fats!

A few weeks back, before my Italy trip I used them in this salad with baby spinach and blood oranges. I loved the contrast between the sweetness of the orange and the savoriness of the sardines.

Here is the step by step recipe. Enjoy and HAPPY WEEKEND!!!

Ingredients:

First thing first, take your lovely sardines

remove them from the oil, put them on a plate and cut them in half to remove the internal bone

On a plate, lay the baby spinach and the sliced blood orange

and  sardines. Season with salt and pepper and give it a good drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Add some pine nuts and serve!

Love
