Story
I CREATED THIS DISH WHEN I WAS ATTEMPTING TO FIND WAYS TO INCORPORATE FOODS THAT I DON'T PARTICULARLY LIKE INTO MY DIET. IN THIS CASE THERE WERE THREE ITEMS THAT I DISTINCTLY DISLIKED FOR YEARS: SARDINES, OLIVES, AND CAPERS. THIS DISH NOT ONLY CHANGED MY MIND ABOUT THESE THREE INGREDIENTS IT ALSO STARTED A NEW TREND OF TRYING NEW WAYS TO INCORPORATE FOODS THAT I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD LIKE.
