Island-Style Sardines and Rice

Recipe by  

"This is one of my favorite recipes. My favorite way to enjoy this is in the morning, for breakfast, with some good coffee. It is made from items that are almost always found in a West Indian/Carribean kitchen. Sardines can be substituted with any canned salt fish, but the soybean oil gives it the texture that is out of this world! Very tasty if you love spicy and if you love sardines!"
