Disaster Cooking

I've had a series of disastrous cooking attempts. I think I may have kitchen gremlins. One of the few things that seems to be working is my mum's Sardine Salad (stemming from her impoverished college days, as I understand it).

Mum's Sardine Salad
1 tin Sardines in Hot Sauce (tomato sauce if you're a chicken)
1 chopped small onion
1 chopped small tomato
(some chopped celery or chopped carrots are also good in this)
handful of cilantro leaves, chopped
squeeze or two of lemon
Splash of tabasco (if youre using the plainer sardines...because this needs SOME flavour dammit)
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all in a bowl, sort of roughly mash, serve over toast (or eat as is).
