Spray the pan with oil and let it get heated up. Sauté the onion and garlic until golden brown. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes until they soften and the sauce thickens. Then add the chopped sardines and let them cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and basil or oregano according to your preferences.
