Yield:

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups peeled ripe tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chile flakes
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark seedless raisins
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 6 sardines, gutted and cleaned but heads left on
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
Directions
  • Place the oil in a large skillet and heat over high heat. Add the onion and saute until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the tomatoes, salt and chile flakes and cook over medium-high heat, uncovered, 6 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the vinegar, sugar, raisins and pine nuts and cook, stirring, another 2 minutes. Lower the heat to medium and add the fish in a single layer, if possible. Baste with the sauce and cook, covered, for 7 minutes. Uncover and simmer until the liquid is greatly reduced and the fish is in a thick, flavorful sauce. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve hot or at room temperature.
