….was a favorite dish back in the Philippines… Originally, me and my boss created a gourmet tuyo pasta, then we tried tinapa (smoke herring fish)…and then this recipe – Pasta Sardines…It’s a mackerel sardines cooked with onions, parsley & some spices. . …… Did you know that mackerel and sardines can make your blood fresh and thinner, prevent heart attacks, and are also thousand times better than medicines? Mackerel is known as a very healthy fish and regular consumption is very good for overall health. It is famous for the heart health benefits it provides and also, known for making the blood clean and fresh. Mackerel is rich in protein and also with some other minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, selenium and magnesium.
