Mince the ginger or cut into thin slices. Combine the ☆ ingredients in the pressure cooker, and once it comes to a boil, add the sardines.
Cover with the lid, and once it starts to steam, pressure-cook over low heat for 30 minutes, then turn off the heat and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
Simmer until the juices become thick and creamy, and it's complete!
Story Behind this Recipe
Sardines were on sale, so I decided to give them a ginger and soy sauce flavor, like canned sardines. I based this on a recipe I found in a cookbook for pressure cookers. However, in that recipe, the bones were too hard to eat, so I revised it to make them softer, as well as the flavor!
Adjust the amount of soy sauce to your liking! Use small-sized sardines. If you use larger ones, add about 15-20 minutes to the pressure-cooking time! Buying fish that have already been beheaded and gutted would make the process even easier! Finally, when simmering, be careful not to let it burn! Adding 1-2 tablespoons of vinegar to the ingredients is also delicious.
