Watch How to Cook Eggplant and Sardine Omelet
Start by preparing the sardine topping. Do this by sautéing canned sardines in tamato sauce with garlic, onion, and tamato. Season with salt and pepper and squeeze a piece of calamansi to reduce the fishy taste. I also like to add some chopped green onions into the mix.
Make the eggplant omelet next. Do this by first preparing the eggplants. For this recipe, I grilled the eggplants until the inside parts becomes soft. Note that it is normal for the skin of the eggplant to get burnt during the process. You will know that you are almost done once you start seeing steam coming out from the cracks of the skin.
Peel the skin off once it cools down. Flatten the eggplant using a fork. Watch the video below for more guidance on this step. Don’t worry, it is easy.
Time to cook the ingredients together. Start by whisking or beating eggs in a large bowl. Heating oil in a clean pan. Dip a piece of eggplant in beaten egg. Lay it flat on the pan.
While cooking, top it with a portion of the cooked sardines along with some chopped green onions. I also pour some beaten egg above the topping to help the ingredients bind better.
Once the bottom part of the eggplant turns golden brown, gently flip and continue cooking the opposite side until done.
