Sardines are some of my favorite fish, I like mine mashed with some hot sauce and then put on a slice of whole wheat toast, toast under a grill till hot, yummy... happy eating, Cara.

I like them plain, right out of the can. I used to eat a lot of these when I was young and have kind of let my taste for them fall by the wayside. They are very good. I will have to get a can and start eating them again. I used to eat the skin on with bones but I think I would like the skinless and boneless better.

Just right out of the can!!! I have never tried them in a recipe - my grandpa turned me on to eating sardines when was very young, and I remember sitting in their kitchen with some crackers, cheese, and and an open can. I think that's the best way for someone to get to know these yummy little flavor powerhouses!

With a fork--straight from the can, or on brown (Hovis) bread-&-butter.

I love sardines! I had no idea they were good for the heart. So I will be eating them more often as I recently had a heart attack.

I love eating sardines w/hot grits, cheese and hot sauce, Has to be FRANKS hot sauce, LOL!
Sardines in mustard sauce is delish too!. I like eating sardines w/crackers too. thats a great snack too!

In my region (Boston, MA) they sell Beach Cliff sardines canned in water. They're the only brand I've found that has sardines canned in water rather than oil, so I get those. But, I don't think they're Pacific sardines. I'm pretty sure they're fished in the North Atlantic. Does it make a lot of difference whether they're Pacific or North Atlantic? I eat sardines all the time because they're reasonably affordable, but I'm afraid if I have to go to the Whole Foods fish monger to get Pacific wild-caught sardines and cook them up myself -- well, it's probably just not going to happen.

Can I still feel good about eating my Northeast sardines (not sure if they're wild-caught, either) ??

In the phils the common way would be with rice. Sardines in tomato sauce are sauteed with garlic and onion with a dash of pepper. you can add chopped vegetables, like green beans, or julliened cabbage or bokchoy.
