Hilary asks: Do you like sardines? If you do, what are your favorite ways to eat them?


When my dad passed away a few years ago, I found a supply of canned sardines, smoked oysters, and other similar products, in his cupboard. I decided to take them and try them. I really like them, and have been eating them ever since. My usual daily breakfast consists of a can of sardines, scrambled eggs, and a half can of spinach with a splash or two of red wine vinegar.

Add lots of turmeric and ginger, two spices which are good for you.

saltine crackers, cream cheese with sardines. Sardines packed in tomato sauce are good.

We eat them in Haiti and we sautee them in tomatoe paste, garlic and onion, with a little oregano or thyme seasoning. Or you can try adobo seasoning.

I steam chopped kale and mix it with rice that has been cooked in chicken broth. Then I serve the sardines on top of the rice with a little pepper. It's delicious! I pre-cook the rice and kale and have it ready to make a quick meal

I like the canned sardines packed in nothing but water. They taste better. I put them in pasta salad or in a tossed green leafy salad.

I also eat tuna and canned salmon. They're all good.

I am eating sardines for breakfast, lunch, dinner. I spray a pan and heat them up and eat them with my apple for breakfast, cooked veg and salade for lunch and dinner. they are filling and make me happy. Good quality protein. I think they will be good for my skin
